The thirty-fourth edition of LaingBuisson’s Care Homes for Older People UK Market Report is indispensable reading for advisors, operators, investors, commissioners, and policymakers involved in this dynamic and changing market. The report provides a robust credibility check on key questions for those interested in investing in the sector or who are looking to understand the impact of change at both a national and local level.

Care Homes for Older People UK Market Report provides a data-driven view of the shifting landscape for care home operators and those looking to invest in the market and paints a picture of a sector where care home fees are rising rapidly, in both the public-pay and private-pay markets. These fee uplifts are taking place at a time when the risks from the implementation of social care charging reforms appears to be receding and where funding reforms appears off the table for both the Conservative and Labour Party ahead of a general election.

LaingBuisson has found that the overall market value for the sector has rebounded to more than £23 billion by December 2023, after having dipped to £17.4 billion in March 2021 during the Covid pandemic.

Our deep insights into market value come with heat maps of fee rates across different care modalities, and for both private and public pay, to give a clear picture of change across England. This is overlaid with wider assessments of local profitability, supply and demand factors, capacity changes and occupancy levels, as well as comprehensive data across all the factors influencing business decisions.
