Neath based business Care Without Compromise Ltd has just completed the acquisition and refurbishment of Penscynor House to meet growing demand for its specialist services. The £665,000 investment supported by Barclays will create 22 additional local jobs with training building on national standards and add to the existing care home – Nant Leiros also based in Neath and doubles capacity for residential care to vulnerable adults.
Tony Doyle, Company Director and qualified Registered Learning Disability & Mental Health Nurse said “We are a family run business involving my wife, son, his partner, my daughter and son in law all heavily involved in the business which means we “live and breathe” the business day and night.
We specialise in providing high quality residential care to vulnerable adults with learning difficulties and complex needs. Demand for quality dedicated care is very high and placements are already limited at the moment so our investment into the business is vital to our success. The refurbishment and investment into Penscynor will continue to enhance the reputation of our service. We already had a waiting list at our existing home which is a strong indicator that we are doing the right things, for our residents and their families.”
Debbie Williams, Senior Business Banking Manager at Barclays, said, “Barclays is committed to using our industry expertise within the healthcare sector to support such propositions, which are vital to a prosperous economy. By really understanding the care sector, Barclays has been able to provide debt finance to support the business which will create 22 local jobs. We are extremely pleased to begin a new banking relationship with the business and working with the strong management team to deliver continued growth for the business.”
Tony Doyle continued;
“We are set in a fantastic location within the former Penscynor Wildlife Park with beautiful surroundings, providing dedicated residential care in an attempt to create a “home away from home” for our residents and acting as a responsible partner to the local community.
The best thing about running your own business is the empowerment to make swift decisions to improve services for your clients, however there is also enormous responsibility knowing that both clients and employees depend on your decision making and ability to make the business a success’’
