What is Joint Venture Partnership (JVP)?

A JVP involves two or more parties pooling their resources and expertise to achieve a particular goal. The risks and rewards of the enterprise are also shared. There are a variety of JVP models but generally a JVP can provide:

  • More resources
  • Greater capacity
  • Increased technical expertise
  • Access to new markets
  • News solutions to financial and operational challenges

What is STEP?

Developed by Ryhurst Limited, a Service Targeted Estates Partnership (STEP) is a form of joint venture aimed at the health and social care market. Under the STEP model the care organisation and Ryhurst become shareholders in a new company that obtains the investment capital for planned improvements in health and social care facilities.   

The STEP Company will take responsibility for all capital works related activity and once service delivery has commenced it will manage and maintain this. On completion of the works, the care provider rents the space from the joint venture company. The STEP Company can be structured to deliver a range of services extending to whole estate management solutions on behalf of the care organisation.
