These themes incorporate Ross Care’s contributions towards creating a healthier community; helping to support local jobs and employment; protecting the environment, and its abilities in promoting social innovation.

Ross Care commented in a statement that it has successfully employed Cheshire and Merseyside-based staff for 25 years, supporting their education and career development as well as contributing towards improving the lives of its service users.

In recent years, the firm engaged in a process of maturing its social value delivery to maximise its impact and secure the longevity of its contribution.

Attainment of this award, the firm states, represents a significant milestone in the development of its social value contribution as a business as it seeks to develop its work through local partnerships.

Alastair Ronaldson, Marketing & Sales Manager of Ross Care commented: “This award comes as a fantastic way to celebrate the effort of our team members who go above and beyond the requirements of our contract obligations to benefit the locality and serves as inspiration for us going forwards.”

Earlier this year, Ross Care launched the new Community Equipment Service for Cheshire, having been awarded the contract in December 2021 with a goal to utilise the provision of equipment across the region to enable people to be supported in their own home, reducing hospital and care home admissions and more.

Ross Care also became a part of the Millbrook Group in February 2021 which extended the combined service to 45 service centres nationwide with 1,200 colleagues supporting the delivery of over 70 contracts.
