Mears Group, one of the largest care providers in the UK, working out of Norwich were already awarded a ten-year framework for the delivery of domiciliary care by the council - now that contract has been expanded to include the region of Kings Lynn as well.
Trina Oliver, South East Regional Director for Mears Care, said:
“The contract win in 2017 was incredible – a ten-year contract is a real demonstration of a client’s trust in the contractor.
When we learned they wanted to bring some other parts of the county into the equation, we were confident we’d have a good shot at that as well. And we did.
“We currently deliver over 5000 hours a week across both branches and are their biggest provider throughout the county.
“We’re all thrilled and are looking forward to continuing our excellent partnership with Norfolk County Council.
“This framework expansion is a testament to what we already know – we deliver a great care service in Norfolk.”
