25 Years of the Hica Group
This year will see us celebrate a big milestone for Hica Group. In September, the company will officially turn 25 years old. It is amazing to say that we have been providing care and making a difference to communities across the Yorkshire and Humberside regions for a quarter of a century. Our official anniversary is in September, but in the run up we will all be taking part in some fantastic celebrations.
For 25 years the HICA Group has remained an organisation where the desire to provide the best services is embedded in everything we do. We have also developed and introduced our Shine Philosophy, which is an important aspirational philosophy and organisational commitment to continuous improvement as well as a personal pledge to making a difference.
Through various initiatives – the Shine Forum, fundraising and the Shine Awards we encourage staff involvement while supporting constant development across all areas of activity. Shine is a culture that turns kindness and compassion into actions; where small actions can make big differences.
We have supported and cared for many people in our 25 years, and we have both heard and created some wonderful and memorable stories along the way. Our residents are the people who inspire us every day to carry on in our pledge to provide the best person centred care.
Throughout the years we have also worked with amazing team members who have shared our values and helped the organisation become what it is today. Our dedicated team is at the heart of all our achievements and we truly appreciate their fantastic work.
We now have 19 residential care homes, five of which are for people with a learning disability, along with two retirement villages. We have maintained the home care services, and now provide approximately 11,500 hours of support and care from four regional offices in the North of England to the local community.
From now until September our staff, residents and service users will all be organising a number of celebration events, including a company-wide birthday cake making competition, a summer BBQ party and the 25th birthday party Shine Ball, with a few special surprises along the way.
We are very much looking forward to celebrating all of our achievements and our big 25th birthday, and we hope you can join us to raise a glass to the future of Hica and what is next to come for the organisation.
