Chief executive David Miles said: "This disposal marks our exit from domiciliary care, in line with the Group's strategy to purely focus on its core Housing solutions activities. This disposal to Cera Care provides continuity for our customers and employees, at the same time as enabling us to focus our efforts where we can deliver greater value for shareholders.”
