Porthaven named in ‘in­spi­ra­tion’ list

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A COM­PANY that owns a Chal­font St Peter care home has been iden­ti­fied as one of the 1,000 Com­pa­nies to In­spire Bri­tain for the se­cond time in three years.

Porthaven Care Homes, which, along with Wood­land Manor, also has homes in Ayles­bury and Sto­kenchurch, has been recog­nised in a re­port by the Lon­don Stock Ex­change Group.

Busi­nesses had to demon­strate a pos­i­tive growth in rev­enue, an in­crease in em­ployee num­bers and to sig­nif­i­cantly out­per­form their sec­tor peers.

Ge­orge Os­borne, the Chan­cel­lor of the Ex­che­quer, said in the re­port: “This year’s list of 1,000 Com­pa­nies to In­spire Bri­tain is truly re­mark­able.

“The busi­nesses and en­trepreneurs in the re­port are a fan­tas­tic il­lus­tra­tion of the UK’s pi­o­neer­ing, en­tre­pre­neur­ial spirit and our na­tion’s ca­pac­ity to pro­duce world-class in­no­va­tion.”

John Storey, Porthaven chief ex­ec­u­tive and founder, said: “Porthaven was formed in 2009 to cre­ate a small group of ex­cep­tional care homes where the qual­ity of our homes was matched by the qual­ity of care de­liv­ered to our res­i­dents.

“Start­ing from zero, in the middle of the last re­ces­sion, we have cre­ated more than 700 jobs to date, as well as pro­vid­ing care and sup­port to our many res­i­dents and their fam­i­lies. It is enor­mously grat­i­fy­ing that our ef­forts have been iden­ti­fied by the Lon­don Stock Ex­change once again.”
