Who we are

About Care City

We are a Community Interest Company. This means we exist primarily to benefit our East London rather than to make a profit for shareholders.

We were founded by LBBD and NELFT in 2015, to bring together health, social care, and third sector partners from across the system with researchers, education providers, technology experts, small and medium-sized companies and social entrepreneurs to develop health and social care delivery and workforce models for the future.

Meet Our Team

We are a small team but with a variety of experiences and career backgrounds spanning both the public and private sector, which brings a rich diversity to our organisation.

Meet Our Board

Our Board supports the future direction of Care City and the development of our work and team members.

Meet Our Community Board

The focus of our Community Board is to involve patients, carers and representatives of our East London community within our decision-making processes to ensure our work is led by the people we serve. It includes local residents, patients, carers, and staff from the voluntary sector, care and health agencies – people who have professional and/or lived experience and can bring that expertise to the Board.

Meet Our Partners

We are an innovation partner to East London’s health and care system. Our governance is composed of local and national partners and will strengthen Care City as a platform for morally purposeful health and care innovation for North East London.
