Healthcare agency proceed with expansion opportunities thanks to immediate working capital injection

Watlington-based healthcare agency C3 Care has proceeded with expansion opportunities thanks to a £50k cashflow boost from Skipton Business Finance - who organised the funds within 72 hours of receiving the initial enquiry.

C3 Care, founded by Ellie Clarkson in February 2015 and is a specialist social care provider for those who receive care and support at home or in the community, had an almost immediate opportunity to expand their company and take advantage of fresh opportunities last Tuesday.

Having spoken to Skipton Business Finance on Tuesday mid-afternoon, a meeting was held the following day with the invoice financier and a deal underwritten and legal documentation raised the very same day.

Ms Clarkson commented: “We knew of the reputation that Skipton Business Finance had of supporting businesses such as ours and we were initially impressed by their desire and appetite to help fund our company within the timescales we demanded”.

She added: “By Thursday we were happy to proceed with the signing of our legal documentation and on Friday we were in receipt of the working capital our business required”.

C3 Care will now provide support services to South Oxfordshire, Oxfordshire, North Oxfordshire and Brackley and surrounding linked county villages in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Northamptonshire.

Speaking from their Bracknell office, Robin Peers, Divisional Director for Skipton Business Finance, said: “SBF is all about having quick access to flexible funding, employing specialist staff and having localised functions under one roof. This enables close relationships with our clients and business partners in the region.”

Mr Peers added: “SBF has an extremely successful track record of helping local businesses raise finance and we remain committed to building our footprint further in this region.”

A subsidiary of Skipton Building Society, SBF is a leading independent factoring and invoice discounting provider, offering a range of working capital solutions for businesses with annual sales ranging from new-start to £30m.
