About Us

The ExtraCare Charitable Trust is proud to be a charity that supports older people.  Our vision is better lives for older people and our mission is creating sustainable communities that provide homes older people want, lifestyles they can enjoy and care if it's needed. To deliver our vision and mission we essentially do three things:

The ExtraCare model of housing brings together 7 Key Factors:

  1. A safe, secure, comfortable new home, equipped and fully accessible to meet residents' need now and in the future
  2. Outstanding leisure facilities in every Village and social facilities in every Scheme
  3. Flexible care and support, if and when residents are assessed as needing it, including day and night  care in their own home by a dedicated on-site team
  4. Pro-active health screening and well-being services providing help and advice to stay fit and well
  5. Stimulating activities, social and leisure interests, helping residents stay healthy, active and independent for longer
  6. Highly-trained staff, fostering a can-do culture, supporting personal achievement and growth
