We are family-run, delivering high quality, sustainable care

Published: Tuesday 7th December 2021

Following BBC Panorama’s broadcast (6/12/21) about international investors in UK care homes, we would like to reassure everyone that draws on our services that Agincare remains independent and without the influence of private equity investors.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of our Founder and Chairman Derek Luckhurst starting his first care home in Weymouth; and we remain committed to a long-term future delivering person-centred high quality care in the community nationwide.

Agincare Chief Executive Raina Summerson said:

Despite ongoing challenges for the sector, Agincare remains family-run, independent and financially sustainable in the long-term. We keep everyone that draws on our services at the heart of everything we do, providing confidence and peace of mind for them and their loved ones, both today and for the future.

In October, our founder and Chairman Derek Luckhurst collected a Lifetime Achievement Award at the prestigious Leaders in Care Awards. Derek’s sons Adam, Simon and Piers, who have worked across Agincare both in direct care roles and support function roles, are taking increasingly senior roles in Agincare and are committed to its future.

We are one of the few care providers nationwide that offers a comprehensive range of care options, tailoring care and support to those we support as their needs change. We believe this enables us to innovate, utilise resources, share skills, adapt and respond in a way that few other providers can.
