Derek Luckhurst (pictured above with CEO Raina Summerson) opened his first Care Home in 1986, from which Agincare was later formed. The Group has since grown to become one of the largest independent providers of Care across the UK.
The group is responsible for delivering major contracts for many large public sector organisations as well as delivering care services to a large and growing number of self-funding clients. The services the group provides for private and public sector clients include:
- Domiciliary Care
- Extra Care
- Dementia Care
- Live-in Care
- Care Homes
- Home Cuisine
Whilst we believe our high level of customer satisfaction and service quality is largely down to our focus on forging local relationships, being part of a major care group also has many benefits, such as building service capability and financial capacity to respond to clients needs. It has also helped us foster a learning culture across the whole group so that lessons and improvements from one part of the business can be shared throughout.
Agincare Group is the holding company for several care related subsidiary companies. In addition, joint ventures and alliances with other organisations are being developed.
Our Board and Senior Management Team comprise highly experienced individuals from social, health and community care backgrounds, central and local government as well as financial and commercial settings. We ensure that this mix of professional skills and experience encourages continuous debate and development regarding the quality and range of our service provision.
The Board has an agreed Vision for Agincare to achieve continued growth and a national presence through self-funded expansion and diversification of services. Unlike many other care companies, despite our success and rapid growth Agincare has remained family owned, with no external investors. This creates a continued sense of a local and caring company driven by people with a passion for what they do. The operational delivery of this is backed by a highly professional support framework including central functions of Finance, HR, Commercial and Quality.
