The Safehands Group is comprised of:
- Safehands Nurseries Limited
- Safehands Care Limited
- Safehands Holidays Limited
The Group’s aim is to provide excellence in the delivery of care to all of our customers. We manage this through three distinct operating companies and the range of services embrace domiciliary care, supported living, nursery daycare and holidays for the disabled and their carers.
The existence of Safehands has always been based on our ability to provide innovative care solutions for all of our customers. Founded in 1997 from an idea to provide a nationwide babysitting service, the business has expanded and diversified its care portfolio, initially through the delivery of care support services to children with disability needs and then more recently into adult care. Close links with entrepreneur Simon Rigby saw him take a minority stake in Safehands in 2007 and the merger of his nursery business into the Safehands branding.
The acquisition of a failing nursery chain has helped us to strengthen our position in the nursery market. We have continued to expand our nursery portfolio throughout the North West. 2011 saw the acquisition of a prominent hotel in Blackpool and the development of a care business dedicated to providing holidays for disabled people. 2015 saw the opening of a second hotel in Llandudno, North Wales enabling the company to widen its holiday operation further.
