The Good Care Group is a provider of high quality home care services that enable people to live well in their home for longer.
BGF invested £2.5 million in The Good Care Group in 2016 to fund investment in marketing and technology and explore the acquisition pipeline. The funding also supported the integration of Oxford Aunts, allowed angel investors to exit and incentivised the management team and employees. Shortly after the partnership with BGF, the company received an outstanding rating from the Care Quality Commission.
In 2019, following a period of significant organic growth, The Good Care Group was acquired by Sodexo, one of the world’s largest multinational corporations. The exit resulted in strong returns for all shareholders - including a significant number of employees.
We have achieved a phenomenal amount over the past 10 years, accelerated by BGF’s support and funding.
Having worked with private equity companies before, I know that BGF is great to work with – responsive, flexible and supportive. It’s been a pleasure to work with them.Fiona Lowry, founder
