Log My Care raises £3M to simplify admin for social care

Log my Care, a London-based platform that enables care homes and social care to ‘go digital’, has raised £3m funding from existing investor Mercia Ventures. The round follows hot on the heels of its £3.25M Series A last year.

The capital allows Log My Care to home in on provisions for carers of patients with learning disabilities and expand functionalities for home care.

Through the app, carers record patient notes, access medical records and receive prompts and reminders. Log My Care's digitisation of existing systems aims to ease the administrative burden on social workers without compromising the care protocols that a patient’s family needs, at a time when the UK's care sector is under increasing pressure. Streamlined systems also help care providers to improve care quality and oversight.

Log my Care has been approved by the NHS as a supplier of digital social care records (DSCRs). While many care providers still rely on paper records, the government is encouraging a move to DSCRs, and its £25m-a-year scheme has recently been extended until March 2026. 

Founded in 2017 by former University of Oxford engineering students Sam Hussain and Adam Hurst, Log my Care now supports over 1,300 care providers with around 20,000 patients. It is particularly popular with independent care providers and those in the learning disability sector. The company, which now employs 35 staff, increased ARR by over 70 percent in 2023.

Sam Hussain, CEO, said:

“By giving carers more time to spend with patients and access to better information, Log my Care helps improve the quality of care for those who need it most. The funding will enable us to continue scaling our business in the UK and extend the positive impact the system is making, by increasing the number of patients it looks after from 20,000 to over 100,000.”

Henry Hamilton of Mercia Ventures added:

“Care providers are recognising the need to move to digital technology, aided by government incentives. Log my Care really resonates with independent care homes as an easy to use product that improves efficiency at an affordable price. The company has been growing rapidly. This latest investment will enable it to further expand its market share and establish itself as the leading platform for care providers in the field of learning disabilities.”
