The UK’s ageing population means now is a good time to get into the care industry 

In the UK, the Office for National Statistics has reported that through the latter half of the 20th Century, the UK’s population transitioned into an ageing one. This trend is only projected to increase, with one in four people in the UK set to be 65 and older by 2050.

The UK’s ageing population is seeing more people leave their own home and move into supported living, whether that’s paid for through self-funding or help from their local council.

This has made the care industry attractive to entrepreneurs and investors who wish to enter the market, in addition to existing operators wishing to expand.

However, the Care Quality Commission that regulates the industry in England (CSSIW in Wales and CIS in Scotland), has delivered increased scrutiny on operators in recent times. This has made it challenging for operators to maintain ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ ratings on their care/nursing homes.

Operating within the care sector brings unique challenges that operators must navigate to be successful. Christie Finance has over 45 years’ experience working with operators in this sector. We can utilise this extensive experience to help you when presenting your funding proposal to finance providers.

Using A Specialist Broker Is Key To Getting The Finance You Need

Continuous changes issued by the key regulatory bodies in England, Wales and Scotland has created an ever-evolving appetite to support the care sector from lenders.

This changing lender appetite means engaging a specialist finance broker is key to obtaining the most suitable funding terms for you and your business.

As an independent credit broker, we are not tied to any specific lender — there is not a lender we have a vested interest in promoting above another.

We have established and trust-based relationships with the leading lending institutions as well as niche lenders and specialist debt funds that operate across the UK.

We know which specialist lenders are financing the care sector, and whom to approach to get the best deal for you based on your circumstance.

Whatever you need, Christie Finance will help you get the funding you need to purchase or lease the care home you want.
