The investment will enable Liaise to build on its high-quality care standards, open new industry-leading facilities and support more people across the country
London, 28 September 2021 — Liaise (“Liaise”), a leading provider of high-quality specialist care services that enable adults with complex learning disabilities to live richer, happier lives, today announces an investment from Intriva Capital, the independent alternative asset manager. Intriva will be backing Liaise’s ambition to deliver high-quality care outcomes for each individual and to serve more people as the business expands its footprint in the United Kingdom.
Liaise was founded in 2001 and provides supported living and residential care homes for adults with learning disabilities. The company employs more than 760 people, including experienced specialist teams comprised of occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and positive behavioural support workers. Liaise works in close partnership with Local Authorities and the NHS to deliver market-leading care quality, with 97% of its facilities currently rated good or outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
With Intriva’s support, Liaise will be able to expand its care services and footprint by developing new homes designed around the needs of individuals with learning disabilities and those with additional needs, such as physical disability. Liaise will also look to bring on more like-minded high-quality providers across the United Kingdom. As it grows the company, it will continue to build on its operational excellence and care quality, with the aim of setting the industry standard for supported living and residential care homes.
Tony Hegarty, Chief Executive Officer at Liaise, said: “We are incredibly privileged that hundreds of individuals and families across the UK put their trust in our care. We pride ourselves in our ability to enable every person in our care to live a rich and fulfilling life with the support they need. It was exceptionally important for us to find like-minded partners who shared in our values and Intriva have proven to be just that. With their strategic and financial support, we can set new industry standards for care and expand our services to more locations across the country.”
Simon Finn, Managing Partner at Intriva Capital, said: “When we first met Tony and his team, we immediately knew that this was a best-in-class organisation. The management team have built one of the most personalised and high-quality care businesses in the country, and they’re passionate about making Liaise’s homes the best they possibly can be for the people in their care. We will invest in expanding the platform to ensure that Liaise’s exceptional care is more widely available to people in need of it.”
