Our Story

It all started with one little van...

The Mears story began in 1988 when a little known maintenance contractor in Gloucestershire, with a tiny work force, took its first steps as Mears Limited. Within four years Mears won its first local authority contract and achieved a remarkable £2.5 million turnover! All from a cosy portacabin.


Domiciliary care services group Supporta acquired and merged with Careforce to create Mears Care – growing the Mears team to a massive 12,000 people.
