Assisted living firm triples office size to make space for new staff

A thriving East Midlands assisted living firm has moved into a new 420 square-foot office at the former Rolls-Royce building in the Osmaston area of Derby as business continues to boom. 

Locally We Do, which helps vulnerable people, such as the elderly and disabled, live independently in their own homes for as long as possible, has met with ever-increasing demand for its assisted living services since the Covid-19 pandemic. 

It is now actively looking to establish a franchise network and take on fresh team members – and according to managing director, Damian Doras, the new office premises in Nightingale Road is key to its continued expansion. 

He said: “Our new office is more than three times the size of the previous one. It comes with a kitchenette and access to a set of dedicated conference rooms, which will enable us to conduct team meetings and interviews, as well as carrying out inductions for new staff and ongoing training for existing employees.” 

The location at Marble Hall is the most recent addition to Derby City Council’s Connect Derby portfolio of managed office spaces. Based in Osmaston’s iconic former Rolls-Royce building, it has been the subject of a major refurbishment and is now a £4 million hub of vibrant, fully serviced office workspaces. 

Damian added: “Our expansion plans fit perfectly with our new three-year lease on the new office. Our aim has always been to create jobs for local people to look after local people - and we feel very blessed and grateful to see all our hard work and commitment coming to fruition.” 

Locally We Do is a registered and vetted member of the Age UK Business Directory and Derbyshire County Council’s Trusted Trader, and has a good working relationship with Derby City Council’s Healthy Housing department. 

It builds its service packages around the needs of each client. Those services can involve everything from home help, cleaning, gardening, handyman work and shopping to accompanied hospital appointments and befriending. 

While the firm is now actively recruiting, both for in-house employees and for regional franchisees, Damian will continue to run the office until a new operations coordinator and admin apprentice have been appointed, trained up and put in place.
