On accepting the Large Business of the Year award Mr Luckhurst said:

I am extremely honoured to accept this prestigious award on behalf of everyone at Agincare. We are proud to be a family-run company in everything we do, it really is a team effort.


I would like to thank the award sponsors Womble Bond Dickinson, it was a pleasure to meet them and talk about Agincare’s extraordinary journey over the last 35 years.

The award recognises Agincare’s confidence, commitment and innovation in meeting challenges of the past 12 months, including the ongoing pandemic and recruitment pressures felt across many sectors. We continued to invest in new and existing services and worked closer than ever with key partners, including councils and the NHS.

The award also reflects Agincare’s journey from a single care home in Weymouth, opened by our Founder and Chairman Derek Luckhurst over 35 years ago, to becoming a leading independent care group nationwide.

Agincare remains family-run, growing without the influence of private equity partners, and is committed to a sustainable future delivering a wide range of high quality, personalised care for people as their needs change.
