Bon Accord Care is at the forefront of the continuing development of services to enable independence and reduce hospital admissions, as well as promote active ageing and well-being. Working together with our key partners, we are aligned with the Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership to deliver services in the local communities of north, central, west and south. We are learning all the time to seek ways to improve and develop new services, ensuring that these reflect the needs of our local communities. These services are designed to reduce future dependence on statutory services, aimed at prevention and early intervention. As a Local Authority Trading Company, we are the first of our kind in Scotland and operate within a contractual framework to deliver services on behalf of Aberdeen City Council, the only shareholder. We are a values led company, which aligns a public sector ethos with a private sector discipline, with a strong social conscience. Comprising of two companies, Bon Accord Care Ltd and Bon Accord Support Services Ltd, we started trading on August 1st 2013.
