Welcome to the New Encompass blog!

 28th Oct 2014

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our exciting new brand and to share with you the journey we have been on so far.

It’s taken us a while to get here but finally we’ve got a new name and a new look! Dorset Residential Homes is now Encompass (Dorset).

Today, it is more important than ever to adapt to an ever-changing society, evolve as a organisation and ensure you are delivering a service that tailors to your customers needs. As DRH we recognised that we needed to review how we positioned ourselves and how our stakeholders perceived us.

Throughout this process of change a lot of people have asked us why we took the decision to move from DRH (Dorset Residential Homes) to Encompass (Dorset).

DRH was of its time, it reflected one aspect of who we were as an organisation. Yes we’re very much a Dorset based registered charity and very proud of our local links and longevity but we’re not just about residential care. We feel it is essential that we highlight the range of services we deliver to the Dorset area, ensuring that we demonstrate our dedication to providing a wide range of care and support services from residential care to domiciliary options for individuals with learning disabilities and people with enduring mental health needs.

Both the people we support and our staff teams really embraced the rebrand process. They were enthused by the idea of a fresh new look and feel and it’s thanks to them that we are now Encompass (Dorset). They picked the name and shaped the look.

This whole process also gave us an opportunity to review and reflect on our messages and core values so that we were in a position to really encapsulate our ethos and approach to everything we do.

We believe the name really does embrace who we are, our values and what we do. And the ‘doing’ part is what we’re really good at. We feel passionate about delivering outstanding care and support, we’ve been doing it for over 20 years and that experience has shaped who we are today.

We would really love to hear what you think of our new brand so please check out our website and let us know what you think!
