Care provider Black Swan Care Group has been announced as the winner of the Large Business award, sponsored by City College Norwich, at the Norfolk Business Awards 2020.
Black Swan Care Group owns and operates 20 care homes across East Anglia and differentiates itself by focussing on making sure its personal approach to both staff and residents ensures they feel at home.
Balancing growth and profitability with quality of service is challenging in the best of times, but Black Swan has excelled in one of the toughest environments and continues to receive accolades for the quality of care given.
Innovation has been at the centre of this, with each property given the autonomy and independence to tailor the bespoke care packages while supporting residents and the communities within which they reside by hosting a number of events, shows and workshops, even during lockdown.
“We are incredibly proud to have been chosen as the winner of our category, especially when we are amongst such an amazing set of finalists from across the county,” said Tom Lyons, managing director. “2020 has been a year full of unprecedented challenges and we have tirelessly worked to support our staff, residents and their loved ones throughout the lockdown.
