Becoming a successful healthcare entrepreneur

angela stewart nuture care

Angela Stewart, mother of three with over 30 years children’s nursing experience in the NHS, saw the gap in the market in caring for children with complex health needs within the community and founded NurtureCare in 2013.

Growing from a spare room in her house to an award winning multi-million pound business in a prime Nottingham city location in under five years, Angela has been the catalyst that expanded NurtureCare to over four counties and shows no signs of slowing down.

Having recently added Nurture Academy, a specialist training division, to her portfolio of successful ventures, Angela now has her sights firmly set to national, international expansion and the opening of the first NurtureCare Respite Care Home.
