Working with your sector

Care Industry

Collecting large recurring sums at scale requires a lot of time and resources. More and more care business owners are approaching us about streamlining their collections process, freeing them up to look after people.

Whether you are a care agency, a large or small residential care-home, or a day nursery, our Direct Debit and card payment platforms allow you to accept payments to suit your business. We have productive relationships with a range of care providers using our software to bring faster, easier collections and improved cash flow.

The best time to collect payment is as soon as your clients’ funding is available. Our service enables you and your customer to manage fees smoothly.

How We Work With You

Over the last year, we’ve seen a huge growth in payments in this sector due to economic and demographic changes.

The population is getting older, but also more working parents need to use child care facilities. As well as the increased demand for care homes and home visits by care staff, there is a rise in holiday kids’ clubs, after-school clubs, nurseries and childminding services. Each of these businesses can benefit from a versatile and efficient Direct Debit and card payment system.

You’ll need to arrange regular recurring payments for standard services, but also have the ability to vary your collection amounts as your fees and services change. You may need to add extra charges for haircuts, gym use, transportation, leisure activities or more, or your amounts may vary according to the season or term times.

Customer service is a big priority for us, and we tailor our solution specifically to your requirements. No two businesses are the same, and we’ll go over your needs to see exactly how we can bring benefits to your operation. Our efficient software gives you great functionality and access to data, and we’ll provide you with training and support to get the most out of it.



One size does not fit all, and we provide a solution that suits your needs, whether you run an care staff agency or a residential home.


Variable payments

Client needs and extra services vary from month to month. Our system enables you to adjust the amounts you need to collect.


Higher value payments

Many payment facilitators place a low upper limit on the maximum transaction value. We enable you to receive over £3,000 in a single payment.


Ring-fenced accounts

We operate a system of ring-fenced funds, keeping your clients’ money safe, and as an FCA-regulated company work to the highest standards.
