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.


Mears acquired Care UK Homecare Limited, the domiciliary care division of Care UK Limited, whose 6,000 employees provide community-based care services to over 10,000 people in England, Wales and Scotland.
