Women set up 'unique' care consultancy in Grantham
Three women have set up a care consultancy which they say is totally unique.
Raising the Bar in Care has been launched by Helen Butler and Tina Chapman, based in Grantham, and Sue Jones, from Wales.
The trio say it is the “only business of its kind” in the country and there is “huge demand” for support and guidance on future-proofing health and social care organisations and services as the industry continues to grow significantly.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the financial services and care arenas, Sue said: “Care is expensive, and professionalism should reflect that.
“There are areas of best practice and some incredible private and public sector groups out there doing an amazing job, but generally, there are still a lot that need help and support to reach their potential and provide outstanding outcomes for clients.”
She added: “As the number of older people continues to rise and rise there is a lot of research and innovation taking place behind the scenes, notably in the development of digital technology to deal with a massive surge in demand. A lot of organisations have not anticipated these moves; they are not ready.
“We are working in partnership with some of the leading companies in the industry and hope to collaborate with more from 2020 onwards, as the focus on making improvements ramps up.”
Helen said there is a need for a one-stop-shop delivering legislative and HR support to private sector care groups and independent residential homes. She said: “Raising the Bar in Care offers an end-to-end service not seen anywhere else in the UK.”
The team will operate from Lincolnshire and North Wales. More information can be found at www.raisingthebarincare.co.uk
