Market outlook

England has by far the highest numbers of people in receipt of homecare services. 89% of publicly funded homecare is now provided by the independent sector.

We operate in a market that is currently estimated at over £20 billion per annum. As the population ages, more and more people are encouraged by the government and NHS services to be cared for in their own homes instead of moving into residential care. This market size can only increase.

Many of our service users fund their own care but we also provide care for government funded service users and those in receipt of a direct payment.
