Lucy Fletcher and April Eastwood – Respectful Care Chesterfield

Respectful Care Chesterfield, part of the Respectful Care Group, has moved to larger offices following a surge in growth and enquiries from South Sheffield residents.

Over the last six months, the branch has seen the number of hours of care it provides increase from 900 to over 1,150 a week, and its staff count now stands at 45 workers, an increase of 10 during this period.  

And with growth expected to continue, the Chesterfield team is hoping to expand to 65 workers by the end of the year.

The news follows the expansion of Respectful Care’s branch in Rotherham, which has also experienced a surge in growth.
 
Discussing the move, Gemma Jack, care manager at Respectful Care Chesterfield, said: “After what has been a trying time for our industry, we’re incredibly excited about our move into new premises. The new office is larger and more representative of a modern firm, which we felt was important to accommodate our expansion to cover South Sheffield.

“We now have our dedicated training room to provide staff inductions, moving and handling, as well as first aid training on-site. Wanting to provide staff with a social space for them to enjoy some downtime between shifts, there is also a designated area for relaxation and refreshments.
 
“We can’t wait to make the new offices our own and for our staff to be able to enjoy the facilities on offer.”

The Chesterfield team plans to use its office of a base for community-based activities, such as coffee mornings, afternoon teas and fundraising events.
