“I’m extremely proud of our reputation in the local community, which has seen us achieve consistent ‘good’ ratings from CQC, the care sector’s watchdog.

“We are also now a sizeable employer in Peterborough with over 70 permanent members of staff on our books.”

She said the next five years were set to be exciting ones for the company as it prepares to invest in the office team and look to technological advancements to help enhance its range of services.

The firm has just started to trial a live web chat service for people either looking for work or wanting to enquire about care service for friends and family.

Amy added: “Social care is currently going through a significant period of change and growth, leading to a broader range of improved job opportunities in the sector.

She added: “ Although our caregivers come from a hugely varied background, the one thing they have in common is that they all have a real passion for helping others and genuinely caring for people in our local communities.”
