Tricuro utilises its competent, capable and flexible workforce, combining innovation and technology to enhance its service offer to provide personalised care and support.

We're proud to partner with them through our Associate Programme.

Meet Tricuro

Launched in 2015, Tricuro is a join venture local authority trading company owned by Dorset Council and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council. The company provides high quality care and support to adults, their carers, and families across Dorset, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

Tricuro develops and delivers services that focus on the delivery of complex care, challenging behaviours and end of life care to adults. Above all else they aim to provide personalised, high quality innovative care and support.

AUB x Tricuro Partnership

Through the Associate Programme, together AUB and Tricuro will identify opportunities for staff and students to collaborate on commercial projects with support, including but not limited to digital design, digital fabrication and other technical support for mutual benefit.

This includes investigating how photography can be used to better represent Tricuro's clients, carers and families and the Tricuro services that they access. To do this, Tricuro will be drawing upon the skills and expertise of AUB's photography students and staff to produce authentic and representative imagery.

As an Associate Partner, Tricuro will have access to AUB's Lab 4 Creative Technologies meaning they can explore new solutions in an exciting and innovative way, including utilising AUB’s research and practice into digital learning technologies and platforms. The purpose of this will be to develop new capabilities within Tricuro that will ultimately help the business to diversify its income streams and support improvements in the sustainable delivery of key health and wellbeing activities.
