Choice Care acquires leading Welsh specialist care provider

by Lisa Carr

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has announced the sale of Care Without Compromise in South West Wales to national specialist care provider, Choice Care.

Care Without Compromise was founded in 2009 and quickly established itself as one of the leading specialist care providers in South Wales, offering high-quality care for people with learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, and complex mental health disorders. In total, the group offers its services to up to 18 adults across three settings in Neath and Kidwelly.

In 2021, the Directors of Care Without Compromise decided to retire from the sector and so appointed Christie & Co to run a discrete marketing campaign. Amid strong interest from a variety of buyers, the Directors elected to sell the business to Choice Care, which already operates services across 80 settings throughout the UK. This is Choice Care’s first acquisition in Wales and will provide the company with a platform to expand in the region.

Speaking on behalf of Care Without Compromise, Directors, Steve Richards and John Doyle, comment, “We are proud of what we have achieved at Care Without Compromise over the past 13 years. The staffing team are fantastic and have showed amazing resilience over the past two years of the pandemic to ensure the quality of care has been maintained for our clients. We are delighted to secure the sale of the group to Choice Care and wish them all the very best.”

Gareth Williams, Chief Commercial Officer at Choice Care, comments, “We are very excited to acquire such a quality group and look forward to working closely with the residents, staff and families over the coming years.”

Rob Kinsman, Regional Director – Healthcare at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, adds, “We were able to target the key acquirers for Care Without Compromise through our depth of experience in the sector and generated multiple bids for the Directors’ consideration. We are delighted to achieve a successful outcome for the Directors and have no doubt that Choice Care will continue to deliver the very best care.

“The level of interest generated in this business underlines the strength of investor demand for specialist care services with a wide variety of buyer groups seeking to expand their portfolios throughout the UK.”

The vendors were represented by Paul James of Redkite Solicitors in Cardiff and Choice Care was represented by Acuity Law in Cardiff.

Care without Compromise was sold for an undisclosed price.
