Wirral home care provider takes home family business award

The team at Professional Carers Wirral, a family-run home care company based in Wallasey, secured the “Business to Consumer Services” Award at a ceremony held in Manchester on Friday, 10 May 2024.

The event, organised by the North West Family Business Awards celebrates business excellence and honours family businesses powering the North West.

Judges presenting the award to Professional Carers stated, “This winning family business has a pragmatic attitude, whilst putting the welfare of others first. The strong team with focused family values from day one has certainly influenced the success of this business today.

“A trio of family members (Julie, Carly and Gary) are the driving force behind this business, and have created a business that can give employment opportunities for local communities, whilst focussing heavily on continuous learning and development of their people and their families that they support.”

Professional Carers, a business that now employs 200 staff and supports over 500 Service Users across Wirral, provides care and support to individuals both within their own home and within extra care accommodation.

Julie Harrison, founder of Professional Carers said, “I am so humbled and privileged to see Professional Carers win this coveted award. As a family-run business, we are passionate about every service user we support, and every staff member we employ.

“The value and importance family-run businesses bring to local communities and the economy is one that should be celebrated, and never underestimated. I am thrilled that the judges recognised our contribution and excellence towards business services and the health and social care sector. This leaves me to just say thank you to our fabulous and one-of-a-kind team, who without them all, we would not be in this position today”.
