Family-run care home operator Handsale is set to expand its portfolio of care homes following a £21.4m financing package. Our funding has allowed Handsale to consolidate its existing debt from three other banks. This will increase the efficiency of the business and also make sure it has accessible funds to develop new care facilities. These include a planned new facility in the Edinburgh area, which will provide 82 new care places. Handsale, which is run by Bharat and Bindu Sodha, currently operates eight care home across the UK – providing a total of 523 beds.
