City & County Healthcare acquires Scottish home care provider Constance Care




City & County Healthcare Group, the UK’s largest national provider of home care, has acquired Constance Care Limited in a move to strengthen its presence in Scotland.


Constance Care is a family-run Scottish domiciliary care business based in Kilmarnock with six branches covering central and western Scotland. It employs more than 400 staff who provide 11,000 hours of care per week to around 1,200 individuals, principally under local authority contracts.


The acquisition expands City & County’s existing presence in Scotland following its acquisition of Social Care Recruitment & Training Ltd in September 2016.


Constance Care is City & County’s tenth acquisition since it was acquired by Graphite Capital, a leading mid-market private equity specialist, in 2013.


City & County Chief Executive, James Thorburn, said: “Constance Care is a well-run business with a strong local presence and a reputation for quality. We are delighted to welcome the Constance Care team who share our values. Scotland is an important market for us and this acquisition continues to develop our footprint across the United Kingdom.”
