Meet the Ashley Care family
Managing director & Founder
The company’s founder and Managing Director, Viv Storey, has been at the forefront of Southend’s social care provision for over 30 years.
In the late 80s, before the Care Quality Commission existed, and Southend was part of Essex County Council, Viv was actively involved in establishing and promoting the Southend Care Homes Association. She worked with various charities to help protect the rights of the less able and most vulnerable of the town, and to lay the foundations for better regulation in the sector.
Viv is still at the forefront of development and reform in care and actively involved with the UK Home Care Association. She is, and always has been, the voice of the profession at a local and national Government level.
