Delivering high-quality social care

Not for profit homecare services


Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council has established a not-for-profit social enterprise to provide home care services. The scheme sees the council work in partnership with Five Lamps, a local community-led social enterprise to provide personal care support to adult residents. The service, which provides over 600 hours of weekly care for clients, has been rated ‘good’ by Care Quality Commission. The scheme was designed to strengthen the provision of quality home care services while providing a highly trained and motivated workforce with opportunities for career progression. Profits are reinvested in growing and strengthening the services provided.

the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
