Care Sourcer is the UK’s first comparison and matching site for care. Anyone can enter their care needs on our secure website and find care providers who have immediate availability.
This is in stark contrast to the current landscape of care, where despite their urgent need, people can often wait weeks or even months to find a care provider who can help.
At Care Sourcer, we are transforming the care sector by bringing choice, control and transparency to the market.

How we started
In 2016, two care business owners decided to fix the broken care system.
Andrew McGinley and Andrew Parfery were both running successful care companies, but it was obvious that they were working within a broken system.
More and more people were waiting months in hospital to find care, while businesses who could provide that care went bankrupt. There had to be a better way.
To fix the system, they created Care Sourcer to directly connect people who need care with the providers who could help.
Two years later, it’s working – they’ve already reduced delayed discharge rates in pilot NHS hospitals by a staggering 40%, and have helped thousands of people find the care they need within days, not weeks or months.

The investment, which is the largest Series A funding round to be received by a digital tech company in Scotland, is helping us expand our care-matching technology UK-wide and grow our team from 20 employees to 100 by the year 2020.
These delays, also known as “delayed discharge”, cost NHS England £3bn annually, or £8m per day, and also force the NHS to cancel operations and increase waiting times in A&E. We’re changing that with our NHS products.
We ensure care services are seen by thousands of care seekers each day. We can maximise care provider availability, increase business sustainability and help care providers secure private clients.
A kind, talented team
Care Sourcer’s mission has the potential to be generation-defining and we’re growing rapidly; the plan is to grow the existing team from 20 employees to 100 by the year 2020.
“As a new team member, I’ve been delighted with the culture at Care Sourcer. Everyone is so friendly and supportive, and the innovative nature of the business makes it an exciting place to work. Why wouldn’t you look forward to Mondays when you’re helping to solve one of the biggest social problems of our time and your colleagues are fabulous?”
