I opened Unicorn1Care as I wanted to make a difference in the world of care and focus around providing person centred care throughout, we believe that the only way is what the client wants. We are proud of the care that we give to each client and are looking to continuously grow.

At Unicorn1Care we believe that our staff should be encouraged to build on themselves throughout their career with us, we encourage all our staff to complete an NVQ level 2,3,4 or 5 alongside other online training.

My goals are to continuously grow as a company and expand within the Oldham area. To be the best and to provide the best care possible and to encourage our staff to build on their career at Unicorn and progress within the company.

We stand by our person-centred care plans and believe that each client should be cared for in a way that they desire. We only take on dedicated and committed staff that demonstrate a true caring nature. We always show compassion to our clients, but it does not stop there we go the extra mile where we can.

Rebecca

Office Coordinator 

Rebecca's Bio

I started working for Unicorn1Care in September 2019 as the office coordinator, prior to joining Unicorn1Care I worked for a Shared Service Centre in Oldham straight from graduating University where I received a BA (Hons) Degree in Business Management (With Equine). 

I initially moved out of my comfort zone into a completely different career as I wanted to work for a company that wanted to make a positive difference to the lives of others. In 2020 I started working towards my level 5 in Health and Social Care and will hopefully have completed this after I return from maternity leave.
