Care.com has launched its services in the UK, marking the 6-year old company’s first expansion out of the US. Members in the UK will get the same great services millions of members in the US have used to find local caregivers.
“I’m delighted to be expanding Care.com’s service for families and care providers into the UK,” said Sheila Lirio Marcelo, Founder and CEO of Care.com. “Technology now enables us to be more connected and leveraging community relationships, whether truly local or through social networks, is critical. Care.com embraces digital technology to enable families to connect with the best caregivers for their loved ones through our unique tools and resources. Hundreds of thousands of families across America have used Care.com to connect with and meet care providers for their loved ones. As we expand our global footprint, I’m looking forward to helping UK families make informed hiring decisions whether they need childcare, elderly care or even pet care or housekeeping.”
Between now and the end of May, users in the UK will also receive free access to the site.
