As part of Agincare, a leading care and support provider, we’re able to draw on experience built up across a range of services over more than 35 years.

Our teams work with families, local authorities and other partners to create homely, supportive environments that assist people to achieve their goals; whether that’s getting a job, going to university, or learning to live as independently as possible at home.

Our highly-trained specialist teams support people to gain skills for lasting independence, grow their communication skills and build social networks in communities. We offer comprehensive services across supported living, community outreach, day centres and respite care.

Our rigorous value-based recruitment process, combined with robust specialist training and workforce development programme, means our teams possess the skills and expertise to support people to achieve positive outcomes in their lives.

Our partnerships

We have many years of experience working with a wide range of local authorities, as well as healthcare and housing partners.

We have developed our service provision both via direct work with local authorities and housing partners in response to local need (e.g. in Medway and Wiltshire), as well as being successfully awarded contracts via tender process (e.g. in Essex and Hampshire).

We have introduced our services at new locations from scratch, but have also taken on existing services from other providers, including transferring team members via TUPE. We have many years of experience working with local authorities and housing partners to develop new schemes in direct response to local requirements.
