Based in the South East of Englove boss love staff mugsland, The Dash Charity (www.thedashcharity.org.uk) has been providing help to victims of domestic abuse for over 40 years. “Our vision is to create a world where domestic abuse has been eliminated from lives forever,” says Delia. A team of 28 employees are employed across their head office and three safe houses. They provide women, men and children with temporary emergency crisis accommodation, advocacy and outreach services, mental health support, resettlement support and specialist children and young people’s services. After a restructure of their senior team, Dash found that they had gaps in their HR skills and knowledge. Furthermore they needed support around health & safety structures and systems, which is why they turned to Croner for support with their compliance needs. Delia says: “We chose Croner after doing extensive research on employment law advisory agencies. We found that Croner had a wealth of knowledge and skills. Our main and first point of contact Richard [Fenn] has always been supportive, timely and efficient in helping us with any needs we have. She adds: “We’ve been with Croner for three years now and the Dash Charity has been very impressed with the service and support the company has given during that time. Our HR systems have significantly improved following an audit by the company, as have our health and safety standards and systems. Our new online HR system, Croner Simplify, is effective and enables us to capture data, trends and manage our systems more tightly. In addition they have helped us improve our quality assurance systems and so that we are inspection ready for the frameworks we work under. As a result our business is more efficient and professional.” If you are a charitable organisation looking for employment or health & safety advice or support and would like to know how Croner can help your business, call 01455 897187
