BelleVie Care, a homecare provider servicing the Hexham area, has announced its B Corp Certification.

By obtaining this certification, BelleVie has joined the three per cent of applicants who have successfully achieved it.

It is now part of a group of companies that have successfully displayed a commitment to both profit and purpose.

The B Corp accreditation, with its 'rigorous' application process, stands testament to BelleVie's commitment towards delivering 'ethical practices'.

"We have always been about doing the right thing for people," said Trudie Fell, CEO and founder of BelleVie Care.

"Our vision is for everyone in the care ecosystem to be valued and supported.

"The B Corp movement believes in the same things as us, in that we both want to use business for good.

"It was a natural step for us to cement our commitment to positive impact by certifying as B Corp.

"The process was rigorous but it’s great validation of our ways of working to receive this certification.

"We’re looking forward to learning from others in the B Corp community.”

Rooted in the values of 'compassion, integrity, and innovation', BelleVie Care, through its 'unique' model built on 'community, autonomy, and genuine connection', aims to reshape care.

Inspired by the Buurtzorg approach, which 'revolutionised community nursing in the Netherlands', BelleVie focuses on prioritising people.
