East Midlands care group contributes more than £5.5m to local economy
A family business which owns and operates five care homes across the East Midlands has released figures
supporting a recent report commissioned by Skills for Care and Development about care homes’ contribution to local economies.
The report showed that adult social care employers contribute £46.2bn to the UK economy. For the 2017/18 financial year, Milford Care contributed just over £5m in total gross payroll costs for all their homes.
Milford Care has five care homes across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, with a sixth set to open later this year, further highlighting the success of the sector and providing even more job opportunities in the area.
“The care sector does a lot for our economy and it is positive news that this is being recognised.” said Milford Care director Pierre Falleth.
“These positive stories are important as there are too many negative stories out there. As a group, we do a huge amount of good, both for the residents and for the local economy through employment of local people, which we are really proud of.”
