Cramlington, United Kingdom, May 09, 2010 --( A local community care company has taken the first step in its programme to establish an innovative and quality service across the UK by this week receiving regulatory approval for its North East hub in Cramlington, Northumberland. Ladybird Care, which provides care to help elderly and disabled people stay as independent as possible in their own homes, has been approved for business in the North East by the Care Quality Commission.

Care Manager Shirley Mills welcomed the approval, stating: “We have been recruiting and training staff for a few months now, so we’re delighted to be able to deliver our first class service to local people and really be in the heart of communities across the North East. We can also expand our recruitment activity.”

Ladybird Care intends to deliver unrivalled care in the community throughout the North East of England, as a platform for a nationwide rollout.
