The new October edition of Care Home Magazine will be the first to be delivered directly to care homes by Furncare.

Regular subscribers will still receive their copies in the usual way, but now extra copies of the latest edition will be included with every Furncare furniture delivery. Randal Southall, Furncare Director, explained “We deliver to hundreds of care homes right across the country every day of the week, so it makes perfect sense to include a copy of Care Home Magazine with every order. It eliminates distribution costs and packaging for hundreds of copies, and puts the latest edition in the hands of front-line carers and managers so they can see what’s happening right across the sector.”

This initiative is another example of Furncare’s efforts to work more sustainably and add value for customers. They’ve produced a special bookmark which goes in every magazine Furncare deliver, which also encourages more Trustpilot reviews (Furncare already average a 4.9/5 star rating). Furncare also use the bookmark to highlight their partnership with The Care Workers Charity which is their adopted charity of the year.

The idea came about when Care Home Magazine came to the official opening of the new Furncare National Distribution Centre last month. Editor Jade Evans learned that Furncare trucks were going to care homes every day to be met by managers and carers who may not normally see a copy of the magazine, even if the home itself was already a subscriber. The new arrangement starts with the October edition which includes a new Furncare ad promoting their 5-day delivery lead time.
