A Southport-based home care group has launched a new operation in Preston as part of a £200,000 investment.

Fast growing family-run home care provider, Alcedo Care, has opened a new regional office at Fulwood Business Park to support and accelerate its ambitious expansion plans for the Lancashire region.

Complementing the group’s existing offices in Blackpool, Southport and Wigan, the new Preston office will be headed by experienced registered manager Claire Culshaw who takes responsibility for delivering the company’s portfolio of personal care, support and nursing services to those wishing to remain independent in their own homes.

The new office launches with 32 dedicated employees, which it will look to increase by another 60-70 over the next six months, and has the capacity to service approximately 200 clients across the Lancashire area.
