The report shows the value of the UK market for homecare and supported living to be £10.3 billion (2019/20) and estimates that around 1 million people are in receipt of care. Through the Covid-19 pandemic, the sector showed itself to be resilient in the face of the challenges its faced and the financial impact on most homecare providers was limited. This was down to the remarkable efforts of the people working in the sector, as much as the support of government grants.

The report also includes the findings of new research which looks at how profitability is driven by location and the scale of the provider. It considers the increasing digitisation of homecare and supported living as 'tech enabled' providers join the list of market leaders.
