Are you passionate about the older generation living a dignified and fulfilling life as part of their community?

We are passionate to support the passionate, no more so than those dedicated to the care of others, so often trapped on the base rungs of the economic ladder because of this dedication.


Our KindaCare Programme

The Missing Kind charity’s KindaCare programme encompasses all the initiatives we and others may have to improve the standard and types of care offered to those in need and to give new opportunities to those who serve those needs.

Kick-starting the KindaCare programme is a residential community start-up based at KindaPlace, our social impact centre at Preston Sands Hotel, on the sea front in Paignton. Our initial focus will be on elderly care, with an emphasis on helping the elderly enjoy life and feel more connected to their community.

We are inviting a select few to help pioneer the project. These will be social care workers, likely to have an experience of, or be in, employment in the elderly care sector. These pioneers will be passionate about a compassionate and innovative care service, ambitious to control their own destiny through the set up of a new co-operative or social enterprise business model, and to receive fair remuneration for their dedication to helping others.

We are actively seeking 4 social carers, who are able to become *temporary residents in our hotel for 6 months (whilst working additional hours with us, outside of any current care employment they have) to pioneer this initiative.

The first goal is to establish a cooperatively owned care agency, serving the wellbeing of the elderly in Torbay. Developing into offering alternative, imaginative homecare, KindaCuisine meal deliveries, and other initiatives to support the elderly in the community.

The rooms are initially offered on a 6 month let, using this period for incubating care businesses and personal development.


If you would like to be one of our pioneers, please do get in touch with your CV and cover email telling us why you think you are a good fit with the aims of the project: Hugh Callacher:


*We would still be interested in hearing from you if you are unable to be part of our residential community, but have the passion and capability to help us develop this initiative and an interest in creating a social care enterprise.
