Blue Ribbon has expanded quickly since opening its first home in 2017 due to its reputation for providing high quality care and a track record of working with commissioners to provide safe, bespoke community-based settings for individuals with complex needs.

“We are excited to secure this investment which will enable the group to focus on supporting many more individuals over the coming years. Many of the individuals we support come to us from institutional environments and need the bespoke services that we develop. Our partnership with QPE means we can focus on continuing to increase the number of individuals we care for, secure in the knowledge that we have a committed, supportive, and experienced investment partner.”
