Hartford Care Group Limited has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2019. The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses (SMEs), with companies representing over 40 sectors and spanning every country and region across the UK.
To be selected for the list, businesses had to demonstrate not only positive revenue growth over the last three years but also outperform their sector peers. The result is a unique and varied list of the UK’s most dynamic companies. More details on the Companies to Inspire reports and methodology can be found online at www.1000companies.com.
Hartford Care Group Limited is part of a family-owned business, established more than a century ago in 1908, that runs 14 individual care and nursing homes located throughout the south of England in Bristol, Berkshire, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Oxfordshire.
The company is governed by its core principles of care, comfort and companionship in an environment that is safe and happy for all.
All Hartford Care’s care and nursing homes have their own dedicated manager and team of carers. With the support of the management team based at the Company’s head office in Basingstoke, Hampshire, each manager is free to concentrate on the important role of providing painstaking attention to detail to maintain the highest possible level of care, and importantly, spend quality time with residents and their families.
Each care home has a team that produces a variety of weekly activities programmes carefully chosen to align with the residents’ interests and abilities. Fresh food is prepared on site by expert chefs every day.
The philosophy of care adopted by the company is totally focused on providing person-centred care through meeting individual needs while, at the same time, affording them dignity and respect.
Sean Gavin, Hartford Care Group’s Chief Executive Officer says:
“Our inclusion for the first time in the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain Report is a significant and very welcome landmark for Hartford Care. This is an accolade that recognises and celebrates the tireless work our exceptional teams undertake 24/7 in providing care, comfort and companionship for all our residents to make them all feel part of the Hartford ‘family’.
“Hartford Care has continued to grow steadily and sustainably, most recently through the acquisition of our three Isle of Wight homes. However, our founding core principles remain as important to us now as when we began; as well as our commitment to continuing that ‘family’ feel which, for many people, differentiates us from other care home companies.”
David Schwimmer, CEO, London Stock Exchange Group says:
“Congratulations to all the companies selected for inclusion in the sixth edition of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report, which identifies the UK’s most dynamic SMEs. SMEs drive growth, innovation and job creation and are the lifeblood of the British economy. We believe that supporting the growth of these businesses is critical to the UK economy and the creation of a society that works for everyone.”
