HomeTouch, a platform that helps people find vetted and experienced home carers, has secured investment from Passion Capital.

The London-based company declined to reveal the exact level of funding provided by the VC firm, but it brings the total amount raised by the company so far this year to over £500,000.

HomeTouch said it will use the capital to increase the number of carers on its platform into the thousands and expand the range of features it offers.

The smart home revolution: Will it ever happen?

The company was founded by former NHS doctor Jamie Wilson, who said: “With funding from Passion, we will help even more people find the quality care they need and hope to become the UK’s unrivalled online home care destination.”

He went on to say Passion Capital’s tech expertise will compliment his startup’s clinical knowledge and understanding of the care sector, enabling it to help even more people gain access to quality care.

Eileen Burbidge, partner at Passion Capital, said: “All of us at Passion have been hugely impressed by HomeTouch, the ambition and vision of its founder, and the entire team’s motivation to solve critical problems in the home care sector.

“We are looking forward to working with HomeTouch to build on its foundations as the innovators in this sector.”

Earlier this month, HomeTouch won the Award for Social Good 2015 in the Tech City News Elevator Pitch Awards, while a few months ago it raised funding from members of business angel investment network Wild Blue Cohort.
