Careforce acquires Weald businesses


Posted on May 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Careforce Group has acquired the homecare business Weald Care at Home and its sister enterprise Weald Care Nursing Services. Based in Tenterden, Kent, the Weald businesses were previously operated as partnerships by Ann Barker and Diana Fussell who will work with Careforce and the existing management, led by Stephanie Smith, to effect a smooth handover. Most of Weald¹s business consists of contracts with Kent Social Services and East Sussex Social Services. The two services, which will now trade under the Careforce and Nurseforce names, represent Careforce¹s first involvement in Kent and Sussex. Previously called “Careforce Staffing Ltd” the company changed its name in March this year to “Careforce Group Ltd” to reinforce the company¹s identity as a service provider which employs its own carers, as against a staff agency. The group now operates in Cambridge, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Suffolk, Sussex, Peterborough and Rotherham.
