Meet the Staff

It is the policy of Holgate House to only employ those staff whose qualification, skills and experience, allow them to undertake their responsibilities competently. All employed staff is subject to a process of continuing appraisal, and additional training needs are continually identified and met.
All staff are required to undertake a number of mandatory training courses e.g. moving and handling, customer care, fire training.
