Christies Care, a family-run live-in care agency, is one of the few in the UK to have been awarded “outstanding” status twice in a row by the Care Quality Commission.

The company started in 1987 and was bought by its present owner in 1991. At that stage it had 15 clients, there was no regulation or training and data was kept on a card index. Christies Care expanded and improved. Back-office support for carers was increased and the now-superlative training team was developed.

Christies Care has grown through word-of-mouth recommendations. That means client service must be excellent and the organisation has to recruit people who focus on client service.

Carers and office staff also come through recommendation. At least half of the agency's carers are recruited this way, which is a testament to how well the company treats them.

The reason that Christies Care is a great place to work is that everybody knows why they are doing what they do: their job is to make clients' lives better. Everybody works towards this goal. The results are tangible and the sense of satisfaction gained from seeing this is immense.

Christies Care's biggest environmental initiative has been its office building, which is built to passive-house standards to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions considerably. Also, almost all its carers travel to work via public transport.
