Governance & Cooperation
There are clear lines of accountability for the service we provide. Carers are accountable to their supervisors. Supervisors and the Scheduling Team work together to ensure the delivery of a quality service to all our clients. The Manager is accountable to the voluntary Board of Management, who oversee the organisation.
In 2016 we joined forces with five other community-based home care organisations to form Dublin Home Care Partners, a consortium which has allowed us to continue developing our close relationship with the HSE as a preferred home care partner.
We are founding members of the National Community Care Network, an organisation that represents 26 not-for-profit home care providers across Ireland.
Board Of Management
Invaluable advice, support and guidance.
The Blanchardstown and Inner City Home Care board is made up of volunteers with a wide range of expertise in the provision of home support and who are committed to overseeing the delivery of quality care to our service users.
We have operated in the community since the 1970’s but were formally established in 2001. Our Chairperson, Mrs. Anne Boyle, ran a Section 39 Home Care Provider for many years and our Company Secretary Mr. Pat Lane has extensive experience in the Irish Health Care Sector.
Our board comprises a group of seven committed individuals who provide advice and guidance to the management team.
