Service demand leads to expansion for Lincoln care company

Expnasion: A Lincoln care business has expanded due to high demand, with a new premises in the city.

Demand for day care and community-supported living has spurred a Lincoln business to expand.

Navigation Support & Care Services has recently moved into a second location at the Carlton Centre, off Outer Circle Road.

The business now employs 56 people and is looking to grow further as more agencies and individuals call upon its services.

Sarah Caines, a director of Navigation Support & Care Services, said: “Due to the growth of our business and the nature of this work, we are always looking for more staff.  We are currently looking to fill three new positions, but working for us is not simply a job, it is a vocation.”

Navigation Support & Care Services, which was established just three years ago, offers support to people with learning disabilities and physical difficulties and their families.

Sarah and her husband Aldrin Caines established the service after Aldrin took redundancy from his former post as a Lincolnshire County Council Community Support Manager.

Sarah said: “When we opened Navigation in April 2011 we hoped that everything would go well, but we never envisaged moving to such prestigious premises this quickly. This has happened due to the outstanding work of our wonderful team, which we cannot thank enough.”

The new premises were leased to the company by chartered surveyors Banks Long & Co.

Jag Landa, a surveyor at Banks Long & Co, said: “We are pleased to have assisted Navigation Care & Support Services with its expansion. This is a growing service business and it is pleasing to know that the Carlton Centre premises are already proving ideal for its needs.”
