About HICA

Welcome to the HICA Group, a ‘Not for Profit’ organisation that specialises in care and support solutions for older people and people with a learning disability.

Our services are provided within an established portfolio of a range of residential care homes for older people and  for people with a learning disability. We also have a well established domiciliary care service providing over 11,500 hours of varied levels of support and cares.

Alongside this we also provide care and support in a number of extra care housing schemes in partnership with social landlords and local authorities.

We also operate two housing based schemes, a Lifestyle Village for the over 55s in East Yorkshire and a retirement village in Chorley, Lancashire which include an award-winning dementia care community.

Although our head office is based in Hessle near Hull, we provide services over a large part of the North of England, with a presence in Yorkshire, Lancashire, Humberside, and Lincolnshire. At HICA Group, we are dedicated to adding real and sustainable social value in each of the locations where we provide services, and we are committed to embracing diversity and supporting equality.


Our Team

At HICA, we believe that everyone should be valued, respected, connected to their communities, and in control of their lives. Our 1500-strong workforce and volunteers share this belief and are driven to empower every person who uses our services to lead a positive life and contribute to family, community, and society.

We owe our strength to the quality of the people we employ. Our team members are highly skilled at delivering personal and positive active support, making them our most valuable asset. As such, we recognize the importance of recruiting and retaining good people and invest in their continued professional development and training. Our Shine Academy supports, trains, mentors, and develops our staff throughout their employment with us. We believe that continuous professional development, together with experience, enhances the expert care that our staff provide. Therefore, we actively encourage our teams to achieve recognized qualifications that support and develop them personally and professionally.

Our teams are empowered to provide professional care and support while upholding Hica values and standards. These standards stretch across the board, including our hospitality, housekeeping, maintenance, and administrative services. At HICA, everyone matters, and everyone is important.
