Contollo Care Group
In late 2020, the Contollo Care Group was created to bring together complimentary care companies with the same core values and deliver exceptional care.
The brand comprises Liberty Support and Yorhealth.
Building on the success of Grosvenor, and recognising the shortage of high-quality learning disabilities and mental health support in the Midlands, in 2016 Ravi launched Liberty Support Services. Alongside proudly achieving consistently high ratings from the care regulator, and having built an exceptional reputation for quality outcomes amongst its Commissioner partners, Liberty Support is also one of the fastest growing social care organisations in the country. Having started as a single office, the specialist care business now works nationally, with further new services due to open throughout 2020. Conservative estimates predict a trebling of EBITDA within the next three years, demonstrating demand for Ravi’s approach to delivering high quality support, and the entrepreneurial flair and energy that Ravi brings to the company.
Yorhealth is a recent acquisition of services in the Yorkshire area, supporting young people and children with a range of complex needs including medical needs and nurse led services. The focus of this work is high-quality person-centred care.
Grosvenor Health and Social Care
Under Ravi’s leadership, his former business, Grosvenor Health and Social Care, grew from humble beginnings to become the largest family-owned homecare business in Great Britain.
Ravi founded Grosvenor 23 years ago, with the singular vision of delivering excellent care to those who require support the most. Encompassing over 58 branches, over 4,500 employees, and an annual turnover in excess of £90 million at the time of its sale, Grosvenor currently includes the brands Balmoral Care, Mayfair Homecare, Care Cymru, Rainbow Services and Meridian Health and Social Care.
Ravi’s contribution to the social care sector has also been recognised by a wealth of awards, including ‘Best Employer’ at the National Care Awards, as well as nine national and regional awards from care related bodies. Most recently, Grosvenor was recognised at the LaingBuisson Awards 2019 as one of the best Home Care providers in the country. His promotion of diversity and championing of his community has also led him to receive Asian Businessman of the Year and Asian Healthcare Business of the Year awards.
