Oomph! outings revolution starts nationwide rollout with major care backers on board

Entrepreneur says funding cuts need not keep vulnerable people stuck indoors

Award-winning social enterprise Oomph! is driving £4million pounds into a radical, new excursions service for people in care. A nationwide roll out will start in five regions following a successful pilot with brighterkind and St Cloud. Leading regional care groups such as WCS Care, HICA and Cumbric Care Group are amongst others jumping on board the new Out and About service from April when minibuses will start hitting the roads in the South East, South Wales, Liverpool and North West, East Yorkshire and East Midlands.
