CRG Homecare has been awarded a contract to provide care across the South Tyneside area, including a rapid response service, domiciliary care and an extra care scheme.
This is CRG Homecare’s largest contract win to date, with the number of hours transferred totalling 3,000. The company, which provides a range of care and support staff and services, will be caring for the local community in Horsley Hill, Cleadon and Whitburn.
Regional director, Laura Rushton, said: “We’re overjoyed to be awarded the new contract in South Tyneside, offering three separate services, all of which will be transferred to CRG Homecare over the next few months.
“This contract will bring several jobs to the area and we’re keen to hear from anyone looking for work, particularly those who may have been made redundant and lost their jobs recently as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
“With the current economic climate, many people may be looking for a career change and that’s something we can certainly support here at CRG Homecare. Applicants do not require previous experience as all relevant training is provided. What’s more, we can help provide people with the tools to carve out a rewarding career in care.”
The new contract will see the business grow as it looks to recruit multiple care assistant roles for the local area.
John Townley, director of Resourcing & Mobilisation at CRG Homecare, said: “We’re delighted to have won the contract in South Tyneside. We pride ourselves on the high standards of service and staff that we provide, so we look forward to expanding our exemplary care offering across the local area.
“We’ll be able to introduce our care packages to service users across the region, all delivered by our dedicated and experienced care workers. We’re hoping to grow the team and meet local demand for exceptional homecare.”
