Care Credentials Wales has changed its name

You will have known about and worked with Care Credentials Wales for some time and hopefully the experience was personal, of a high-quality, and enjoyable. Care Credentials Wales has evolved, and we are excited for you to be part of our new journey.

Why change our name?

With our organisation evolving, we felt it was important to reflect on what we have achieved and where we would like to be in the future. We felt that a new name and visual language would better reflect who we are and where we want to be.

Pengwin is the Welsh word for ‘Penguin’. The penguin is one of the world’s most caring and nurturing animals, looking after both the young and old within its colony. Because of this, we felt that connecting the warmth and caring nature of the animal with our passion for care and education was important. Pengwin reflects our values perfectly.

Although services remain the same, Pengwin reflects our strong Welsh roots, is aligned to our mission and is centred around our core values – Intelligence, Quality, Approachability and Integrity.

Our new website is now live, we would love it if you took a look around and let us know what you think.

This is not the end of Care Credentials Wales, but the start of Pengwin…
