Providers of social services to the elderly and people with disabilities help those who live at home to stay there rather than entering residential care. The two expanding major markets for the industry, those aged 65 and over and those with a permanent disability, promise to support revenue growth. The UK population has been ageing over the past few decades and the proportion of people aged 65 and over has been steadily increasing. The number of people living with a disability has also risen slowly in the past five years, lifting both demand and, by extension, industry revenue.
Operators in this industry offer counselling, referrals, day care, vocational rehabilitation and habilitation services to the elderly and those with disabilities. The industry does not cover accommodation or day care for disabled children.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
