Home care capacity
Due to increased demand for care from hospitals and local councils, we are now mapping up-to-date home care capacity across the UK. By surfacing this, we hope to drive efficiencies in searching for care, meaning more people are able to leave hospital and safely return home sooner.
To search and compare home care agencies with capacity to take on clients near you, enter your postcode at www.caresourcer.com.
“I needed a package of care to start tonight due to a hospital discharge. Care Sourcer was extremely efficient in finding me an agency. I would recommend this platform to all Commissioning Teams UK wide.”

Hospitals and social workers are facing unprecedented pressure right now!
The COVID-19 crisis is leading to high demand for care from hospitals and local authorities. To help them understand capacity and risk areas, we are now mapping up-to-date capacity of home care agencies in London.
As hospitals become overburdened, helping older people out of hospital and into a care setting is now more vital than ever. We know local authorities are struggling to keep up with this demand so we have offered the use of Care Sourcer’s online service to those in need.
We’re asking all UK care providers to share their details on the Care Sourcer website so that we can quickly connect people in need to the appropriate care.
How can Care Sourcer help?
Care Sourcer is the UK’s first comparison and matching site for elderly care. Our website contains details of over 2,000 care providers around the UK that can be quickly searched online by those in need.
Last week we helped a London council re-allocate 14 care packages in two hours. We want to offer this support to other councils and NHS bodies throughout the UK.
