I would like to personally say thank you to all the amazing people we work with who have supported Local Care Force on this journey. It's because of you these incredible achievements have been possible!

Leanne Silverwood

As last week marked 100 years since women got the vote, we thought it was a good time to share some of the amazing achievements of the female entrepreneur behind our business…


  • Leanne opened Local Care Force’s doors when she was just 25 and has worked in the Social / Health Care sector for nearly 20 years!
  • She’s been a registered manager and registered individual with the CQC for almost 10 years too!
  • She started her career at Leeds Mental Health Trust, securing funding to start the first Activity Co-ordinators roles for the trust.
  • She’s won the Yorkshire Post’s Young Entrepreneur Award.
  • Local Care Force secured a Sunday Times Top 100 Businesses to work for listing in 2017 – achieving the highest-ranking place of ANY Yorkshire business!
  • This year Leanne won both the regional and national Inspirational Leader Award from HSBC & Forward Ladies!
  • And was invited to the prestigious Women of the Year lunch, alongside Camilla Parker Bowles!
  • Just last week, Leanne was listed as one of the rising business stars and business leaders of the future, in Insider’s 42 under 42 list.
  • Local Care Force continues to go from strength to strength and, this month, we achieved record hours staff were out working – across all our offices!
  • Because of this we’ve invested in some exciting technology for the business… from electric cars and iPads for training to VR and even mobile app development!
