We are incredibly excited for what 2022 holds for the Outstanding Society.

The Outstanding Society is a Community Interest Company and aims to Share and celebrate best practice and help others to improve.

It is open to ALL providers irrelevant of rating and is a free network for all. We would like to start the New Year by welcoming our new Board of Directors:

Executive Director

James Rycroft: Managing Director Vida Healthcare.

James was one of the core members of the OS created in 2014. Although James took some time out to concentrate on his expanding business, we are delighted that he is returning as a Director of the CIC.

“I’m delighted to be on the board of The Outstanding Society. The organisation promotes and shares good practice and offers a positive voice for our sector. In a time of uncertainty this is exactly what social care needs”

Non-Executive Directors

“I am delighted to join the Outstanding Society at this pivotal moment in its development. As a company, we have benefitted hugely from the support of the OS, and I have enjoyed being part of the organisation for over four years. I am excited now to help shape its future vision and ethos of spreading outstanding practice throughout the care sector.”

Sanjay Dhrona – Managing Director, The Close

“I’m thrilled to be joining the outstanding society as an Non-Executive Director, it has been a tremendously exciting time for the whole social care industry and the work the OS does is invaluable in sharing ideas, processes and successes to ensure the whole sector levels up and speaks with one voice displaying inclusion, innovation and creativity in the face of all the challenges we face”

Samantha Crawley – Director of Care and Quality & Transformation Excelcare

“The Outstanding Society epitomises the ‘Why’ of leaders in care. We seek to be and emulate outstanding in all that we do and the Society enables true discourse and learning across the sector – enabling real improvement to happen. I am honoured to be part of this and look forward to the years ahead.”

The Nonexecutive Directors all operate Outstanding rated services and have contributed positively to the Outstanding Society over the last 12 months to enable it to build such a positive reputation.

Zoe & Russell hope you will agree that with such a wealth of experience across the Sector we will be able to Share, Celebrate and support providers even more throughout 2022.
