Great company
I've been with dolce just over 2 weeks, fast paced and a great team. We've qll got on greatly from day ine the support is fab. So glad I found them fits well around school hours for my children and perfect for getting back to work after having time away for my family.
Field support supervisor in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire

Rights of care staff ignored.
I read all the reviews of this company before I started and decided I will speak as I find.. I wish I had not. As a field support supervisor the fist thing I noticed was that care staff were not properly trained in dealing with challenging behaviour and also violence when directed at them. As a result I heard threats being directed at people we support which I reported to my superior and provided a statement detailing such an incident, during which myself and a support worker were physically abused around 25 times between us in a 30 minute period. I detailed in my statement that I held the service user around the wrists as gently as I could to prevent them punching me in the face. This hold was 10 seconds long. I was ambushed with a probation review with no notice and was not told that I could be supported by a colleague or trade union representative if I wished. I was dismissed later that day and have not received the promised letter detailing what had been decided and why. I was never given a chanvlce to review the evidence of what I had supposedly done. What bothers me is that the staff team all told me that they were not supported with the management of challenging behavior and several were talking about leaving the service due to being at the end of their tether. When I suggested some physical skills training it was rejected. I believe my human rights have been violated due to my right to lawfully keep myself safe has been withdrawn from me. Staff are not allowed to eat when on long shifts using the food in the house either.

No support network
Leaving Voyage was the best decision I could make. The work life balance does not exist. Constant hounding if you decline an extract shift, all senior members of staff will call you in the hopes you fold to one. However when your ask for support from your senior staff you get a half hearted text or email in response. I raised concerns about my own well being due to the job in a supervision and was told they couldn’t put that as it made the senior of the service look bad. Concerns are rarely acknowledged and repeat issue occur in services. The over cleanliness of services is absolutely appalling and to a very poor standard. The company has evidently taken on way too many services users for their work load as staff are stretched to their limits resulting in a high turn over rate. As well as multiple service users missing out on vital support outs and in essence being neglected.The only positive is that services are filled with amazing people to support many of whom have great personalities and make working for the company easier. You can have some great relationships with so many of the service users.

Not a good place to work at all
Rude staff, management are never in, they don’t follow abc form correctly and clients are allowed to abuse staff. Not allowed to have a break, or go for a cigarette
