HomeTouch has closed a £700,000 funding round from Global Founders Capital (GFC) to boost its growth across the whole of the UK by 2017.

The funding, which also came from Passion Capital and angel investors, will be used for investment in performance marketing and further product development.

Founded by former NHS physician Dr Jamie Wilson, HomeTouch seeks to provide greater transparency for families looking for care and claims to raise the hourly income of home carers by 75%.

The company also received a £250,000 grant from the UK government for research and development, bringing its total funding to date to £1.75m.

HomeTouch’s recent raise comes after it closed an undisclosed round from prominent VC Passion Capital.
