City & County Healthcare Group, the UK’s biggest national provider of homecare, has acquired Constance Care Ltd in a move to strengthen its presence in Scotland.

Constance Care is a family-run Scottish homecare 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 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.”
