VIDEO: Vital Stroud Day Centre comes under the wing of leading Gloucestershire care charity

Leading Gloucestershire care charity Lilian Faithful have welcomed a new county branch to their portfolio with the Uplands Day Care Service in Stroud becoming part of the charity.

Martin Hughes, CEO and a team of Lilian Faithful staff were at Uplands this morning to welcome the staff of Uplands, including manager Hayley Dalby to the team.

Uplands Care Service is a charity in Stroud that has been delivering exceptional day care for over 20 years.

Combined with Lilian Faithfull Care, they have together offered nearly 100 years of care to older people in the County.

Mr Hughes said: "We are delighted to welcome Uplands guests, families and staff under our wing.

"As a Charity they can take comfort, that we are safe, stable and are in care for the right reasons - not for profit. We look forward to furthering the excellent support Uplands gives in the community"

Chair of Trustees of Uplands Care Service John Colquhoun added, "I am really pleased that we have been able to merge Uplands into another not-for-profit care provider and thereby secured its future in perpetuity which is great news for the community.

"It is particularly gratifying that, without exception, the responses that I have received from local organisations have been very positive about this news."

Suzanne Booker, Director of Care at Lilian Faithfull Care says, "We will cherish and nurture the community service Uplands has provided over many years in the Stroud Valleys"

Lilian Faithfull Care has been delivering care for 70 years, caring for 300 residents with 450 amazing staff.

The Uplands centre is the third to open under the Lilian Faithful umbrella, following two in Cheltenham.
