A local success story

One firm to benefit from Business Lincolnshire’s support is Amber Care, a home care provider based in Market Rasen.

Run by mother-and-son team Bronia and Jack Johnson, it provides personal care such as shopping, light cleaning and companionship, helping residents to carry on living in their own homes.

While Amber Care was in its early stages, Bronia attended a four-day workshop where she met David Hawkins, a growth hub adviser.

He helped Bronia and Jack create a business plan, targets and back-up arrangements, as well as putting them in touch with experts who could advise in
specialist areas.

Amber Care has now identified new night-time practices that will help improve the quality of its 24/7 care.

The business is also continuing to expand, with a team of 20 new staff recently brought together in the North Lincolnshire area.
