Homecarer Advertising

Homecarer magazine offers an unequalled medium for businesses allied to the domiciliary care sector and reaches homecare providers directly. The magazine contains the latest news, updates and policy guidance for the homecare sector and is distributed to UKHCA members and all Social Services Departments and major voluntary groups.

The magazine is printed in full-colour on 130g satin paper. A typical print-run is 3,200 copies of a 20 page magazine, with a much larger potential readership as recipients usually circulate the magazine to managers and staff. Homecarer is also available on-line from the members-only area of our website as a Public Document Format (PDF) file.

A summary of previous editions of Homecarer is available from our Homecarer page and includes a sample edition of the magazine.

Adverts are available in the following sizes and colour options:

  • Full page colour
  • Half page colour
  • Quarter page colour
  • Eighth page black and white

Discounts are available for pre-paid block bookings and UKHCA members, subject to conditions.

For a copy of our Commercial Pack, including rates please complete our commercial pack request form.
