Elderly care services company expands in Stockton
A provider of services for people paying for care in Stockton is expanding into new premises after securing additional investment.
Three Score Years and Ten, which was founded in 2009 to offer personal care for elderly people, successfully applied for a grant to move into larger offices, as well as launching a new apprentice scheme with Middlesbrough College, the Evening Gazette reports.
Amanda Rylander, founder of the company, said she was helped by the Understanding Finance course, which is designed to help small businesses to improve their grasp of financing.
"Previously, I just wouldn’t have had the confidence to apply for bank loans or the knowledge to input facts and figures onto a balance sheet," she told the newspaper.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the interactive and informal nature of the workshops."
According to research by Partnership, many younger people object to paying for long term care, saying elderly people should make more contributions.
