Ross Care has received a prestigious award for its commitment to creating healthier, more sustainable and resilient communities.
The company, which has 18 wheelchair service centres, including four clinical assessment centres across the north and north-west of England, was handed the Social Care Value Award by Cheshire and Merseyside Social Care Partnership and the Social Value Business.
Ross Care marketing and sales manager Alastair Ronaldson said: “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.”
As part of the process, Ross Care was assessed in four key areas:
Social: Creating healthier, more sustainable and more resilient places and communities;
Economic: Supporting jobs & employment, creating fair employment and good work for all with inclusive growth;
Environment: Protecting and improving our environment;
Innovation: Promoting social innovation.
For over 25 years, Ross Care has employed Cheshire and Merseyside based staff, supporting their education and career development, as well as contributing to improving the lives of our service users.
In recent years, Ross Care has engaged in a process of maturing its social value delivery to maximise its impact and secure the longevity of its contribution.
