The Care Business

Starting a Domiciliary Care Agency in the UK

If you want to find out more about how to start your own care business or agency in the UK then you have come to the right place. This site gives you a brief introduction to starting a care business. It's a complex subject and there are few places that bring all of the information together for those just starting out their research.

The UK domiciliary care agency sector has grown rapidly over the last ten years. The contracting out of services which were previously run in-house by local authorities has provided a real boom in the sector.

With an ageing population, requiring more complex care, and more frequently in the home setting, there is without doubt still room for considerable growth. There are challenges being faced by the sector, but there is still room for well run agencies, offering quality care, in the market place.

Indeed with more and more service users controlling their own budgets there is scope for more personalised and niche care which can often be provided for by small to medium domiciliary care agencies.

This website offers an insight into starting and running a domiciliary care agency. We also offer an introductory guide which brings together all the relevant information you need in order to help you decide whether this business is for you.
