Bellevie was born at London’s based social impact enterprise accelerator Zinc. Trudie and Violaine are both passionate about creating good jobs in care, to make it a desirable career that will attract top professionals and increase the quality of the service offered to our older population. They have interviewed hundreds of care workers and older people receiving care, and decided to create a new model for homecare that will answer their current concerns and struggles. BelleVie started in Abingdon in partnership with Wellbeing Teams and was joined in January 2020 by Mary Curran and Emma Pithers.
We have taken inspiration from Buurtzorg (self-managing teams of nurses in the Netherlands), Wellbeing Teams (self-managing teams in social care in England), and Cornerstone (self-managing teams care and support work in Scotland). We are particularly thankful to Wellbeing Teams for their generosity. They have shared so much with us, including self management techniques, documents and processes.
