We exist to improve lives
Allan Ross Nursing and Homecare Ltd was established in 2002 by two nurses from East Lothian. They saw the way homecare was being delivered at that time and decided they could do things differently. The business went on to deliver quality care to thousands of people across East Lothian for many years. In 2016 the company was taken over by Pamoja, an organisation led by two social entrepreneurs, Gavin and Louis Stedman-Bryce. The company was then relaunched as Beyond Homecare.
Pamoja’s mission, driven by Gavin and Louis, is to improve people’s lives through inspiring change. With a strong record of accomplishment in training and development, Pamoja leads the way in helping charities and other not for profit organisations measure and demonstrate the value and impact of their work.
The UK social care sector is facing huge challenges. Public sector funding is being stretched as budgets are cut, year on year. Yet our population is an ageing one that requires help and support to remain at home, living safe, dignified lives. We do not believe the status quo is an option, that’s why we aim to change the way the sector operates to ensure that care for the most vulnerable in our society is secure for many generations to come.
Pamoja’s expertise and collaborative approach will shape Beyond Homecare’s development and growth, streamlining systems and looking at where technology and innovation can improve our customers' experience.
We go beyond giving back
Giving back is extremely important to us. In fact we have a goal to positively impact the lives of 1 Million people by 2020 through our work. That is why Beyond Homecare is proud to be a lifetime member of Buy One, Give One (www.b1g1.com).
The B1G1 idea is simple. Every time we do what we do, we give back through B1G1. This means that for every hour of care we provide to our customers, or for every Homecare Superhero we train, we make a little magic happen at the same time by giving to good causes around the world.
In addition to overseas charities our 'making an impact' workshops have provided free training support to over 300 local UK-based not for profit organisations to better demonstrate the impact of their work, to help them improve their impact and increasing their chances of continued funding
