Enviromental & Social Value

Recycling:  We at East London Care and Support do our part by recycling all our waste.  That includes all cans, cardboard, paper, printer toner's and ink cartridges.  We have reduced our plastic waste by using reusable water bottles.  We also reduced our paper waste by using electronic forms of communication and forms instead of printing.

We also encourage all our carers to teach our clients how to recycle in their own homes.

Carbon Footprint: We are doing our bit in reducing our carbon footprint by, encouraging out carers to use public transport or walking instead of using their own vehicles, as we mainly employ carers who live in the local community.

We also have purchased our own transport bus, so we can go transport our clients to where they need to go.  It also is equipped with a wheelchair ramp for our disabled clients.

We also have joined Amazon Business, where all products bought are sourced locally before going else ware in the country.
