- Investment year
Active Assistance provides a live-in care service for adults and children with spinal cord injuries and neurological conditions. Many of their clients are tetraplegics, requiring a consistently high-quality level of care from the carers or personal assistants.
As a family-founded business, Managing Director, Andrew Allan, wanted to release some value for his family, which our 2008 investment achieved. Our partnership saw the role out of a nationwide expansion, leading to a 30% annual growth. Further to this, Active Assistance reduced recruitment spend to 1/6 of pre-investment figures with the reduction of staff attrition by 2/3 over a 12-18 month period.
