For us, it’s personal.

We started SuperCarers after our family’s difficult experiences of care.

About us

Our purpose

The UK’s care system is at breaking point. It has forgotten about people. The people who receive care. The people who pay for care. And the people who provide care.

Our purpose is to build a new system that puts people first.

To do this, we’ve created online tools that connect families and expert carers. We’ve built technology that makes managing and paying for care easier. And we’ve created a new system that rewards hard-working, compassionate carers. Because we know the difference that personal and reliable care can make.

We want all people to be able to stay in their own homes for longer and we want all families to enjoy the moments that matter, free from the worry of who is looking after the person they care most about.

We’re here because we care. And we believe that together, we can make the quality of care better.

About us

Our Story

Brothers Adam and Daniel Pike founded SuperCarers after watching their mother struggle to cope with managing their grandma’s care. Grandma Pam wanted to stay at home but the care was expensive, inconsistent and poor quality, leaving their mother to see to Pam’s needs.
