Homecare operator

 

Founded in 1989 by Mary Lee and now led by her two sons Tim and Ben Lee, Helping Hands provides a wide range of tailored home care services, ranging from its hourly visiting service, to 24-hour live-in care. It also offers a nurse-led clinical care service which enables individuals with complex conditions to be supported at home. The business is headquartered in Alcester Warwickshire and operates from over 60 branches across the UK.

The provision of high-quality service to its customers and a rewarding working environment for its carers are central priorities for Helping Hands. The company was delighted to recently be ranked as #22 in the Glassdoor ‘2018 Best Places to Work – Employee’s Choice’ Awards, the only healthcare business in the top 50.

Livingbridge’s minority investment will enable Helping Hands to continue to develop its national presence, whilst maintaining the strong family leadership culture that has underpinned the company’s success to date.

 

“Our ambition at Helping Hands is to be the brand which is synonymous with quality home care in this country. In Livingbridge we believe we have found a partner who understands our business, shares our ambition and who will help us reach our objective.”

Tim Lee, CEO at Helping Hands
