Heritage Care was formed in 1993 as an Industrial and Provident Society and part of English Churches Housing Group (ECHG). Originally we provided residential care homes and day services in East London for people with learning disabilities and mental health support needs. By 1999 we had extended our services to other London Boroughs and East Anglia and included services for older people.
During 2000 and 2001 we grew substantially, creating new services in Lincolnshire and Buckinghamshire for people with learning disabilities and older people.
In 2002 Heritage Care parted from ECHG to become a separate organisation.
During 2004 and 2005 further major growth occured in our learning disability services in Leicestershire, Staffordshire and Norfolk.
By 2009 we were ready to expand into new areas in East Anglia, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, London and Sussex. It was at this time that we established a housing and property services subsidiary called Amber Housing.
In April 2010 Heritage Care became a registered charity (number: 1135353).
In 2010 further growth took place with the transfer of four residential services in Nottinghamshire and Worcestershire from another charity and new learning disability services in Derby, Leicestershire and Solihull. In addition specialist mental health provider Community Options merged with Heritage Care and took over the management of mental health services as a subsidiary of the group.
In 2012 Home Support Staffordshire joined the group to provide specialist support to people with learning disabilities, older people, and people with mental health needs in their own homes across Staffordshire.
Today Heritage Care is established at the forefront of providing progressive person-centered services and now employs almost 2000 staff supporting more than 1000 people in over 150 different locations. The groups annual turnover is in excess of £37m.
