A history of caring experience

Universal Care was set up in 1986 by Universal Care’s Chairman, Peter Cullimore and his late wife Gillian. Peter was concerned that the only option for many people was to move into a residential home. He felt that forcing people to leave their homes just because they required care was both inconsiderate and unnecessary.

With this philosophy Universal has grown over the last 29 years and many of our clients have come to us as a result of personal recommendation. We are proud that our clients recommend us and this is firmly based on the caring nature and dedication of our staff.

The best environment for client and carer

We believe strongly that a happy worker makes a better environment for all concerned. For this reason, we're very selective about the carers we employ and the standards which our staff maintain. Providing ongoing support and training, we ensure that all of our carers are happy, confident and able to provide the most comprehensive care at home services. We encourage and support staff in attaining qualifications in Care. In recognition of our commitment to our staff and the training they receive Universal Care is an accredited Investors In People company.

Universal Care wins highly regarded Dignity In Care Award.

For the second year running a Universal Care worker was awarded the prestigious Dignity in Care Award. Our Carer, Amy Collins was nominated by two of the clients she cares for. Amy was rewarded for her dedication to providing the very highest standard of care. You can view her video on our home page.

Peter Cullimore – Chairman

Peter is still in touch with many of our clients and carers on a regular basis.
