The care sector crisis is caused by very low carer pay. Change this or you won't solve the problem. Curam uses intelligent, proprietary technology to safely manage a platform where carers earn 50% more and clients pay 10% less. The platform has delivered more than 1 million+ hours of quality, well paid care.

  • 300% YoY rev growth & £3.6m raised to date incl. ex founder of Gumtree
  • Carers averaging >£14.50 per hour (after Curam's fees)
  • Over 4k verified carers with over 50K having expressed interest
  • 12 councils are working with Curam and they are in talks with a further 30
Information £2.154m of funds on the progress bar represent funds raised by the Company prior to launching the campaign. The Company has already received these funds, shares have been issued, and the Company has indicated up to £300k may be spent whilst the pitch is live. Completion of the Crowdcube raise will occur on the same material terms and share price.

Idea

Curam was started with the express aim of significantly increasing the earnings of carers, thus tackling their unsustainable estimated annual attrition rate of over 30%.

Our technology connects ​self-employed carers with clients, where they either search and message approved carers or post a job with us - making the hiring of a carer quick, easy and safe.

Carers are insured, given free training and carer benefits (including sick pay) and set their own rates.

The UK homecare sector is worth C£20B with little innovative technology in use, particularly in the care agency channel. Over 50% of home care is funded by local councils - our revenue model works within their funding constraints.

With an almost fully automated platform and a flat fee of 12.5%, we are providing a fast-growing scalable solution to this vast fragmented (over 8k agencies in the UK) sector.

The number of over 85 year old in the UK will double by 2042. Nearly 80% of over 55 year olds now own a smartphone making the introduction of a technology solution both desirable and inevitable.

We believe the cure to the problems of our care sector is the intelligent and empathetic application of scalable technology, whilst also enabling a community where carers and clients are rewarded and respected. We built Curam to do just that.
