HomeTouch secures funding to help match home carers to families
Passion Capital investment takes early-stage start-up's funding to £500,000 and will support "expansion" across London
HomeTouch, an online platform matching carers to families, has secured an undisclosed level of funding from Passion Capital to bring its total investment to date to £500,000.
Founded earlier this year by former NHS doctor Jamie Wilson after seeing patients discharged from hospital struggle to find home care, HomeTouch uses recommendations and flexible pricing to help families find vetted local carers that will suit their needs.
The business claims to deliver thousands of hours of care each week and has customers in every London borough.
The funding will enable the company to accelerate its expansion across the capital and will also go towards increasing the number of carers on its platform and expanding its range of features.
Wilson commented: “HomeTouch has been growing incredibly fast across the capital, and as we have grown the quality and size of our network, we are now seeing the clear benefits of being the UK market leader with increased choice, reliability and transparency to UK families.
“With funding from Passion, we will help even more people find the quality care they need and hope to become the UK’s unrivalled online home care destination.”
Eileen Burbidge, partner at Passion Capital, continued:
