CareMarkets UK meets Nuno Almeida…

By Sarah Jenkins

Nourish founder and CEO, Nuno Almeida has been featured in LaingBuisson’s CareMarkets UK magazine for a Q&A. The interview details Nuno’s upbringing and background, his introduction into social care and vision for the future of Nourish and social care as a whole.

On his initial introduction to social care:

“I grew up in a small village in the centre region of Portugal. The family home had a shared boundary with the largest mental health  hospital in the country – and growing up in the 1980s when the clinical practice of mental health evolved making it possible for patients to walk out and about in the community – the community kept an eye out for patients who were free to roam in the village. In the same village, there was a working farm manned by over 150 people with learning difficulties. At the time I had no idea what social care was, and I thought everyone lived in a similar environment.”

On bringing more positivity to the sector:

“We are a vibrant sector, full of brilliant, extremely resilient people, full of innovation, a sector that plays a very important role in the tapestry of our communities and our country. We need to keep our collective chins up and show this to the world consistently.”
