List of domiciliary care agencies for direct marketing campaigns.
As the average age of people living in the UK rises, so too does the number of domiciliary care services and home care businesses operating across the country.
Home care in the UK is split between commercial (for profit) and voluntary (non-profit) personal care providers, all overseen by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
There is no current reliable estimate for private spending on care, as noted by the Office for National Statistics in its 2020 report. However, local council spending alone stands at around £18.7bn.
Research also suggests that external supplier contracts have become more common since the introduction of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
This legislation allowed local NHS organisations to source their own products and services.
For suppliers to this sector, access to relevant contact details speeds up the marketing process and helps you to locate and target the appropriate agencies.

Home support care agencies in the UK economy – an overview
Ibis World estimates that the home care industry in the UK stands at around £5bn annually, spread across 11,325 businesses.
The sector has faced significant challenges in recent years as the result of austerity, followed by the coronavirus pandemic.
The recruitment and retention of support worker employees continues to be challenging. This has led to some providers being forced to offer care to fewer people – a situation that many organisations in the sector are keen to resolve.
The sector is currently very open to any solutions that can help carers to do their jobs more efficiently while providing a consistently superior level of care.
How to sell to decision makers in this sector
There are three main points that any home support provider in the UK is focused on at the moment.
Support providers are keen to embrace technology in order to address the challenges of an ageing population.
Technology that is in the most demand are those that can:
- increase productivity or
- keep families up to date with the health and status of their loved ones
Recruitment and retention
Social care has long been troubled by difficulties around recruitment and retention.
Organisations are always looking for solutions that can reduce the risks to support workers and improve outcomes for service users.
Training and education that helps agencies to attract the best care workers is also highly desirable.
Home care costs
As government spending within the local authority drops, the average home care service can expect a growth in privately purchased care.
A home care provider is preferable to residential care for many. It offers a solution that is more comfortable and more cost-effective.
Suppliers that can help these agencies to stay affordable will generate the strongest leads in this sector.
