A 20 year commitment to Lichfield South by a blue-chip occupier

Voyage Care is a UK wide company with over 25 years’ experience and one of the market leaders in providing healthcare, social care and support to a range of vulnerable people. They offer a range of support and care services with community based environments (Supported Living and Outreach) and Care home environments. Voyage Care work primarily with younger adults and adults who have complex needs, who may also have a primary diagnosis of a learning disability, autistic spectrum disorder, acquired brain injury or Huntingdon’s disease, often with associated physical or mental health issues.

Voyage Care, who employ more than 7,000 people across the UK, chose to relocate its head office in May 2013 as part of its ongoing expansion plans. Formerly based in three separate premises in Lichfield and Cannock, the new head office at Lichfield South enabled Voyage to bring its senior management and administrative operations within one headquarters building. In 2017, Voyage continue to expand with their recent recruitment drive.

Voyage Care were awarded Specialist Care Provider of the Year at the Health Investor Awards 2016.

“In the last two years, our business has grown significantly requiring us to look for new premises that can support our long-term strategic plan. We wanted to remain in the Lichfield area as it’s a good central location which gives us easy access to the homes and day centres we operate across the country. Equally, because the majority of our head office staff live locally, we wanted to minimise their journey times. Lichfield South suits our needs perfectly enabling us to remain in the Lichfield area and our move here marks the start of a new and exciting chapter in Voyage Care’s history.”

Kevin Roberts, Voyage Care’s Chief Executive (2013)
