Sevacare was founded in 1998 by Ravi Bains, who had been working in various roles in Social Care and related disciplines. Having carried out research for an M.A. that identified a chronic lack of housing and care services for BME elders in Birmingham and surrounding areas, the Company was formed to help address this shortfall, providing care services to specifically meet these needs. From its first base in Walsall, and with a handful of family and friends, Sevacare began to provide care to the BME communities, in particular Asian elders, on a voluntary basis. The Company developed to provide services to paying customers, who wished to purchase a specialised service that was appropriate and responsive to their cultural, social and religious needs and preferences in addition to their physical needs.
Many of these initial Service Users came as referrals from the well established community-based organisations such as churches, gudwaras, mosques and day centres often linked to BME communities. Sevacare has maintained these links, which we believe are a vital part of our continued success in not only identifying a potential customer base but also providing fertile ground for recruitment. We are able to obtain staff from the communities we serve, a theme that continues through to the present day with our "community-based approach to business".
Sevacare has now moved on from this initial specialised provision, for although we are still rightly proud of our heritage as a provider of care services to the BME communities, we have evolved into providing a range of diverse and wide-ranging care services to all communities. Sevacare is no longer a specialist provider, but a mainstream provider that can provide a specialist service if required to do so: a small but significant change to our ideology and practice.
