Job Applicant Check | uCheck
uCheck covers all the checks commonly needed for screening job applicants and employees – DBS, Right to Work, Adverse Credit and Identity. Within their DBS services they provide Enhanced, Standard, Basic, Volunteer and Individual Checks.
Data Protection | ICO
Keeping people’s personal data safe is key to getting them to trust the service you offer and your business. Under the Data Protection (Charges and Information) Regulations 2018, individuals and organisations that process personal data need to pay a data protection fee to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO), unless they are exempt. You are responsible for protecting the personal data of (or information about) anyone who comes into contact with you – including your customers, suppliers and staff.
If you are thinking about setting up a new healthcare business or becoming a self-employed carer, it's important you understand what the rules are for registering with the CQC.
Unlike some other industries, healthcare is regulated. This means that setting up a new healthcare business isn't as easy as just choosing a company name and starting to trade – you must make sure you are compliant.
CQC countersigned enhanced DBS (CQC-CE-DBS) Business Finance
You need the relevant CQC-CE-DBS to register with CQC if you are a:
- registered manager (may also be the nominated individual or director)
- sole trader (individual).
Countersigned means CQC authorises the CQC-CE-DBS checks to be carried out.
Your CQC-CE-DBS must be no more than 12 months when you register.
Start Up Loans Company
Apply for a government-backed Start Up Loan of £500 to £25,000 to start or grow your business.
Unlike a business loan, this is an unsecured personal loan.
You’ll get free support and guidance to help write your business plan, and successful applicants get up to 12 months of free mentoring.
