Royal Educare is the preferred supplier to a number of charities and organisations, ranging from children’s services to mental healthcare. And, as the name would suggest, it’s branched out into education, too.
For sibling founders Victoria and Alex Williams, Royal Educare provides an ideal blend of their skill sets. Victoria holds several qualifications in health and social care, while Alex spent several years in recruitment.
After conducting a rigorous research of the local area, they realised their proposition was unique and decided to start up last June. As well as providing rigorous vetting of each candidate, and a demanding interview process, Royal Educare is thriving due to its competitive price points, and a bespoke approach which takes each client’s cultural circumstances into consideration.
Operation managers are available 365 days a year and the founders pride themselves on the close relationships they have forged with both clients and staff – one of whom is their mum.
Although there were some teething problems (such as the fact that their clients were exempt from VAT), the business generated healthy revenue in its first full year and have now become ‘Best New Start Up Business’ 2018 at the South Wales Business Awards.
The early success in healthcare is now being mirrored in the education sector, with several schools and further education colleges already on board.
Having grown to five in-house staff and 100 agency staff, Royal Educare is ideally placed for further growth.
