By 1998 the company had grown considerably and won the prestigious Blueprint Business Award for service quality and contribution to the community! In 1999 the company was offered a distance learning course contract with what was then known as Winslow Press, now known as Speechmark publishing.
With the arrival of the care standards act in 2000 and subsequent TOPSS induction / foundation frameworks in 2002 (now Skills for Care), INCARE Services was one of the earliest providers to map into these qualifications all of its course outlines and to offer free and impartial advice and help during the frameworks’ early stages.
In July 2006 after comprehensive auditing procedures, INCARE Services was awarded accreditation status with the ODLQC which it holds today.
In addition, the company offers ASET, EDI and CIEH accredited courses.
Currently the company provides over 150 ‘off the shelf’ face to face courses specific to care and unlimited bespoke courses to choose from ranging from 1hr to 30hrs.
Great quality training requires a blended learning approach and for theory based training INCARE services offers an ever growing range of cost effective e-learning and distance learning solutions to its range of on site and public training courses.
Incredibly, INCARE Services is currently responsible for training over 12,000 care staff a year!

Harriett Pattern, South Thames Crossroads
“We have been working with Incare Services for many years here at Woodbine Manor Rest Home. We have always had excellent service from the booking stage right through to the training provided on the day. Booking training is always straight forward, I send in a list of our requirements for the months ahead, and very quickly get back a list of dates. On occasions we have had to alter dates and this too has been a smooth process. On the day we have found the trainers to be friendly, flexible and they have tailored the training to meet our needs. We have done, and will continue to recommend Incare Services to others in our profession.”
