Greensleeves Care Chief Executive, Paul Newman, with Broadacres Home Manager, Kim Lavery.


Greensleeves Care has expanded its not-for-profit care provision with the acquisition of Broadacres, an award-winning, residential care home in Barton Turf, Norfolk.

An independently owned and run home, Broadacres has been in operation as a care home for nearly 40 years. With capacity for 28 residents, the property was converted from a private residence in 1986 and subsequently extended. Broadacres features 25 large bedrooms with full en-suite facilities, welcoming communal spaces and attractive landscaped gardens.

Broadacres is the latest home to join Greensleeves’ growing family of residential, dementia and nursing homes across England, expanding its provision in the East of England, where the not-for-profit group now operates nine homes including two services rated outstanding by the CQC. The purchase of Broadacres is part of Greensleeves’ programme of growth, which combines new built properties and acquisitions of existing services, and follows the recent opening of a purpose-built nursing home in Tooting, London. The organisation started in 1997 with 17 homes, and now operates 28 homes across England.

Paul Newman, Chief Executive of Greensleeves Care, said:

“As the newest member of the Greensleeves Care family, Broadacres will allow us to continue our decades-long charitable mission of offering high-quality and person-centred care to more older people across England, ensuring that Broadacres’ residents continue to receive the excellent care with which the home has been associated. Thank you to everyone involved in completing the transaction.”

The transfer of ownership was supported by solicitors, Wilsons Solicitors LLP, agents Christie & Co, and advisors, Azets.
