Enhancing the lives of society’s most vulnerable.

Our Mission

Safe As Houses has access to a nine figure investment fund to meet the care sector’s rising demands. We partner and fund an evolving portfolio of dynamic partners which enables creation and funding of high quality accommodation and future-proofed environments. Each one of our developments is aimed at enhancing the lives of society’s most vulnerable individuals in the most dignified way possible.

Why We Exist

Safe as Houses Care has positioned itself as the leading provider of solutions within the sector providing the increased and enhanced infrastructure that is desperately required.


We work with a range of collaborative partners which is constantly expanding.


Our funding model enables operators to expand quickly and safely.


All projects are future-proofed for long term sustainability.


We engage with as many involved parties, as early as possible, in order to facilitate the development of services for those needing them.


The overarching aim is to create a better overall quality of life for society’s most disenfranchised members.

Who We Support

We work across all client types, including (but not limited to):

Learning Disabilities.
Autism.
Mental Health.
Elderly.
Dementia.
Children’s Services.


As long as the relevant Commissioner / CQC / Ofsted support for vulnerable people is in place, SAHC will develop whatever is needed to support their needs.

How We Work

Safe as Houses Care is fully geared up to regenerate properties, build new or a mixture of both.


Each project is undertaken in partnership with our award-winning Architect partners Carless & Adams.


We also have the internal capacity to source sites, survey them, project manage and complete full development.


There is no capital outlay required from our partners on any of our sites and we can also assist with initial cash flow cushioning.


Instead we would cover all costs and then look to lease back to the Registered Providers, Care Operators or directly into Local Authorities and the NHS.


Where required we will provide the project with all fixtures and finishings as appropriate, including all agreed relevant bespoke works.


The use of renewable energy sources is at the forefront of Safe As Houses Care’s thinking and where practical we always enhance the energy efficiency of all sites to reduce running costs and carbon footprint.


We always seek to incorporate tech and automation where this is practical and offer free of charge access to Person Centred Software’s award-winning operating App (we offer to purchase all hardware for the project and will pay for the licensing costs for the first 12 months) as well as the Sounds Like Me Care personalisation app.


We will provide hard and soft landscaping upgrades to every project to further enhance both the staff and service users environment.

Our Engagement Model

Our ideal engagement scenario is to organise a Workshop with all relevant parties, either at the site in question or a walk around the site then move to another location for the workshop.

The key aim

The key aim of the Workshop is to encourage debate and dialogue at the outset and get a feel for the exact needs of the Local Authority, NHS or CCG or mixture of all.

Where we differ is that we always ask the question “What would you like?”, enabling the relevant parties to ensure they are getting the exact project in their area that would fulfil current demand as well as being future proofed.

Relevant Support

When we talk about the relevant support needed to move forward with a project we are principally referring to commissioner support and rent tests (Or rents that are appropriate to the individuals care package).


Where housing benefit is being paid we always aim to be rent neutral, where the rent we propose will be no more than what housing benefit would agree to pay.


Regarding commissioner support, we always look for a full written letter of support on headed paper, relating directly to the development being discussed.

Our Ultimate Objectives

We want to build a cohesive, but limited number of robust relationships with Registered Providers, Care Providers, Operators and Commissioners so that there would be a pipeline of developments, where all parties can be confident there will be suitable accommodation in place for years to come.


To continue to be the leading part of the solution to the problem that there is of a chronic lack of suitable future-proofed care facilities within the UK.


Our stated intention is to become the ‘go to’ solution provider for all target audiences – and positive influencers within the care sector.


We are truly and fully committed to enhancing the lives of society’s most vulnerable individuals.
