Our motivated employee teams deliver quality services, with each person playing a valued part.
Best trained and retained employees
We aim to have the best trained and retained employees in the sector. Families and carers are welcome to attend Avenues specialist training sessions which are City and Guilds accredited. We offer Autism Awareness Training, Dementia Training, De-escalation and Diffusion techniques and NSPCC Child Protection Awareness Programme. If you are interested in our training please call 0203 535 0500.
Local employees with local knowledge
Every person we support has the opportunity to live a healthy and active lifestyle and be part of their local community. We actively recruit local people with local knowledge, so they can share this knowledge with the people they are supporting.
