This study investigates the professional characteristics of care staff working in group homes for the mentally ill in a north London region.
Opportunities for training and staff attitudes with respect to training and career prospects are examined.
The majority of care staff are unqualified and in many cases the training needs of staff are not being met.
Staff viewed their career prospects as limited.
Training that is on offer to staff in principle is often not accessed, possibly owing to budget restrictions.
The need for more stringent guidelines on staff training to maintain standards across agencies is highlighted.
