Recruiting now! Care Assistants for Kallar Lodge Care Home
Kallar Lodge is a council-run residential care home providing support to adults over the age of 65 and specialising in caring for people living with Dementia. The care home has 44 bedrooms and is surrounded by beautiful grounds, providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for its residents and staff.
We are looking for a number of new care staff to join our team to help us provide high standards of care to the people living at Kallar Lodge. We are looking for people who can help provide residential and end of life care to people who are no longer able to stay at home in the community.
As a care assistant you’ll need to have a genuine caring attitude and be dedicated to enabling older people to maintain their independence and retain choice and control by providing individualised care and support to each resident according to their needs.
We joined forces with the police for day of action
We're determined to combat antisocial behaviour in Barking Town Centre, so that's why last Thursday (29 April), our enforcement officers and the police teamed up to patrol key hot spots.
The day of action saw our enforcement team and the police split up in three groups and deployed to the Abbey Ruins, East Street, Fishnet Roundabout and other surrounding areas.
Throughout the day, two patrols took place from 2pm to 3.30pm and 4pm to 5.30pm at all three locations.
Police officers also supported our officers to patrol and enforce the Public Space Protection Order in Barking Town Centre, which prohibits antisocial behaviour, such as spitting, urinating and consuming alcohol in public.
These patrols resulted in eight alcohol seizures, three begging warnings, a welfare case discussed and two spitting warnings.
As well as this, our enforcement team also supported the police’s Op Scantic, which was taking place at Barking station, by funding a police dog. The operation resulted in:
Three arrests (Wanted by court for failing to appear for disqualified driving, possession of a knife and Class B drugs and possession of Class C drugs)
In the April issue of African Business Magazine, out now, we take a detailed look at how Nigeria plans to build back after the economic ravages of the pandemic. With hopes of a long-awaited recovery in the price of oil and a raft of multi-billion dollar infrastructure projects in the pipeline, Africa's largest economy is again planning a renewal. We interview ministers, tech entrepreneurs and energy pioneers about the future, and ask whether the recovery will be sustainable or prove yet another false dawn. Also in this issue, we look at how Morocco's grounded aerospace sector is bouncing back from Covid-19, investigate how drones and AI are shaping the future of agriculture, and take a deep-dive into the future of sustainable investment.

Those who have survived a brutal business environment often struggle to understand why they should contribute to an administration which appears to throw frequent obstacles in their way.
