Southend Care

Southend Care Logo

Southend Care’s vision is to be the provider of first choice for the local community, enhancing the quality of peoples’ lives. And we exist to provide values-based compassionate care services of exceptional quality to some of the most vulnerable people in society.

We are based in Southend-on-Sea and offer support services, including supported housing, extra care housing, residential assessment, day opportunities, supported employment and shared lives.

'We are delighted to be part of TAPPI2; this is a golden opportunity to collaborate with our technology partner Amba, Southend City Council and tenants to test the impact of deploying technology augmented care in people’s homes. This important work will determine how people’s independence can be maintained or enhanced and, in turn, support Southend Care’s progress in becoming a technology-enabled company. We are excited about bringing to the project a new approach to delivering person-centred care and support services that can challenge how we think and offer new insights into technology integration with face-to-face support.'

Stephen Unsworth, Director of Operations at Southend Care


TAPPI Phase 2 is funded by The Dunhill Medical Trust (DMT) and supported by the Housing LIN and the TSA.

Following the recruitment of a Co-Production and Engagement partner, an Evaluation and Shared Learning partner, and 6 locality 'testbeds', the programme is co-produced with the successful applicant organisations over a 12-15-month period.
