Our Ethos

We Pride Ourselves on Five Key Principles

  • We are a community: We value each other and we all have a responsibility to look out for each other’s safety and well being
  • We believe in empowerment: We recognise that we all have a positive contribution to make and encourage each other to reach their full potential through a full and active life
  • We respect each other: We acknowledge that we all have our own personal, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs; and that these may vary over time
  • We prioritise personal dignity: We do not compromise on an individual’s right to live a dignified life of enjoyment, self determination; recognising their need for privacy and choice
  • We value quality: We provide for more than the basic needs; with attention to detail in all aspects of life at Askham

    The ethos set out above is extended into a more detailed charter which all staff, patients and visiting professionals sign up to. It incorporates all the aspects of the Social Care Commitment promise which Askham Rehab, part of Askham Village Community, has signed up to.

Our Community

Askham Rehab is part of Askham Village Community, a family-run group of five specialist rehab centres and care homes on the edge of Doddington.

The group is one of just three businesses representing Cambridgeshire having an experience of over 30 years in the care sector. Askham Village Community provides specialist care and rehab for the very young to the elderly, offering day visits, respite or long-term care, goal-focused rehabilitation, and continuing reablement support. With Askham Rehab we are now bringing all our rehabilitation sevices together with the incorporation of the cutting-edge robotics and sensor assisted technology.

At the beginning of 2020, Askahm Village Community was shortlisted for two prestigious awards in the prestigious Family Business United Awards 2020 in the ‘East and East Anglia’ category and People’s Choice Awards 2020. Being nominated in these categories came as an acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication done by almost three generations. Askham Village Community speaks for the values shared by the founding family, values found in our ethos. Staff, as well as the wider community are seen at Askham as an extension of this family.
