A NEW community care provider will be setting up a branch in Stroud this summer to deliver care to customers in Stroud, Dursley and Stonehouse.
Home care specialist, Helping Hands, has recently launched 21 new branches across the UK including the Stroud branch.
The new branches will be able to provide both care for local residents and job opportunities for carers.
As well as providing specialised care to those in need, particularly during the Covid-19 outbreak, the care provider offers vacancies for those who are looking for care work.
Branch manager Deborah Farrington said: “We are all very excited to be opening a new branch in Stroud.
“We have an amazing team of carers who live locally and who have been supporting our customers in nearby Gloucester and Cheltenham.
“We are thrilled to be extending our service to Stroud and look forward to welcoming many more carers to our team.”
Andy Hogarth, Helping Hands CEO, said: “We’re thrilled to announce the opening of our new branches, and we hope that we can support many people in need of an extra helping hand at home.
“We’re very much about focussing on the customer and what they want from their care, so that they can continue to be independent in the place where they feel their happiest.
“Although plans were in place to launch these new branches many months ago, its feels as though they are more important than ever in the current climate, enabling us to reach even more people who may have been discharged early from hospital or self-isolating and need vital care at home.
“This is also a great opportunity for those looking for work to join us and really make a difference in their local community.”
