Care homes taken over by charity

Care homes taken over by charity
17th December 2007

A charity has announced it has taken over four care homes and a sheltered housing scheme in north London.

A tender to provide specialist care to 150 residents in Brent and Harrow has been secured by the MHA.

This organisation consists of the Methodist Homes charity and a housing association.

Willow Housing and Care ran the homes and housing scheme until the MHA took them over.

Speaking to 24dash.com, MHA group director Jane Barker said: "We are delighted to have been chosen by Willow to operate their care homes and housing.

"MHA has experience of acquiring and managing services for smaller charities and housing associations who may find the legislation and responsibilities of running care homes challenging," she added.

The MHA is a charity which provides care homes, housing and support services for older people throughout Britain.

It has been established for over 65 years and now delivers help to 12,000 individuals.
