Have your say

The Yorkshire-based nursing, social and homecare agency Local Care Force has expanded by opening an office in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

The Leeds-based company, which was founded 10 years ago, broke the £10m turnover mark at the end of 2014.

The new office will be led by Sarah Whitehead with a team of seven permanent, full-time staff.

Commenting on the expansion, Leanne Silverwood, the company’s director, said: “I am extremely proud to now have a presence across the Pennines in Manchester.

“This is the result of lots of hard work and steady and organic growth over the last decade.

“Demand from existing customers has been high in the area for a while now and so it seemed like the ideal time to set up a new office. We have a great team, an incredible space, and will be offering training on site as we do in Leeds. We are constantly on the lookout for talented nurses, support workers, carers or people who wish to take their first steps into this rewarding industry.”
