Welbeing has won four major new contracts to further secure its position as one of the UK’s leading telecare organisations. The contracts have been awarded by East Sussex County Council, Cumbria County Council, Muir Group Housing Association and leading national social housing provider, Stonewater, and will support thousands of people across the country.
Steve Smith, Welbeing CEO, said “We are absolutely delighted to have been selected by all four organisations to work in partnership on their telecare contracts. These new client wins are a significant endorsement of our position and reputation in the telecare industry, and alongside further organic growth and acquisitions, will continue to strengthen our market position. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our staff for their continued dedication and hard work.”
East Sussex County Council has awarded Welbeing the contract for the provision of its Telecare and Assistive Technology Service across the county. Approximately 4,900 people are currently supported through the contract, and in a county that has a significantly higher proportion of older people, this figure is expected to grow over the length of the 5 year contract.
Welbeing has also won Cumbria County Council’s tender for the commissioning of a countywide Telecare and AT service including a carers’ contingency service. The contract will start in October 2016 with a target to maintain at least 2,000 customers throughout the year and to achieve 600 new installations, with an emphasis on targeting customers around falls, dementia and home safety.
Muir Group Housing Association (MGHA) recently awarded Welbeing with the contract for its community alarm service via the Procurement for Housing Framework. MGHA owns and manages more than 5,000 homes across the country and was looking for a single provider that could offer a modern, flexible, client centred approach to its customers.
Stonewater also awarded Welbeing the contract, again via Procurement for Housing, to become the supplier of the call monitoring services for its 4,000 retirement living buildings and supported living services.
