Yorkshire care home provider opens new site and creates 60 jobs with £650k funding
An East Yorkshire care provider has received a six figure funding package to open a new care home and create 60 jobs.
Yorkare Homes, which has five care homes across the region, secured the £650k funding from HSBC UK.
The new care home will be in Hornsea, and will create 60 full time roles, on top of the 75 roles that will be created on completion of Mere Hall, a care home that is currently under construction.
The funding will also be used to purchase PPE for staff and residents and provide pay rises for staff.
The company has also received a further £600k from HSBC UK to allow the business to buy more land in East Yorkshire, to meet its goal of building three care homes across the region over the next two years.
Laurence Garton, development director at Yorkare Homes, commented: “Our objective is, and has always been, to help people.
“With the help of HSBC UK, we have been able to employ more carers to ensure our residents are receiving the best quality of care during the Covid-19 crisis.
“We’re also excited to resume our ambitious development plans for 2020. Adding to our growing estate will create more capacity to offer high quality care for families across East Yorkshire.”
Mike Craft, relationship director South Yorkshire and Humber at HSBC UK, added: “The team at Yorkare are doing a phenomenal job in providing the very best care to its residents during such a tough time for many families.
“I’m delighted that the funding has allowed them to protect their employees with vital PPE and much deserved pay rises.
“Yorkare is a fine example of a dynamic business that is delivering a fantastic service throughout the pandemic, whilst also looking to the future and creating scores of local jobs in the process.”
