A CARE group has joined a group of ‘ambitious and prestigious’ businesses with the opportunity to shape policy.

East Lancashire-based Springhill Care Group, based in Accrington, has joined the diamond ambassador programme of the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce.

Membership of the scheme is limited to just 60 companies, with a cap on three businesses per sector. Each ambassador becomes a spokesperson for their sector, offering an opportunity for businesses to offer opinion and shape policy.

Donna Briggs, managing director of Springhill Care Group, which also operates homes in Skelmersdale and Bristol, said: “We regularly make our views known across the care sector and we’re looking forward to helping to shape the East Lancs business community.”
