Plait (Home Care Management)

Plait is an end-to-end next generation community care management solution. Truly multi-platform (desktop, tablet, mobile), Plait is the culmination of years of experience in designing and delivering IT platforms for social care providers.

Plait is built on open source technologies, and, when it is all production ready, it will be open sourced itself. That means that you don’t necessarily need to be dependent on reallycare CIC (unless you want to be) and can make whatever changes you want to the software. Our YouTube channel will give you a good idea of what it is like.

The following modules are already available and available for live use (though still in beta):


Our scheduling system is a huge leap forward in usability from the legacy homecare systems, exports to your accounts and payroll, and is fully integrated with our point of care system.

Care Planning

Partially funded by a Catalyst scaling grant from the RSA (our founder is a Fellow) our newest addition optimises the whole process of handling referrals, completing assessments and publishing care plans, including highlighting changes at the point of care.


A slick, automated way of managing applicants and the complete recruitment workflow

Medication Management

Comprehensive medication administration, in the office and at the point of care via our mobile app for care workers

If you would like to be a part of this project, perhaps with a view to implementing Plait
​at your care organisation, please contact us.

Plait Mobile

Plait Mobile is the point of care system that works alongside Plait. It incorporates eMARs, task management, access to care plan and much more. Service users and their relatives can be granted appropriate access.

Better Care Guide

​The (temporarily moth-balled) Better Care Guide is a website which allows the public to search for care providers and comment on the care that they have experienced. It is the only site of its kind that covers the whole of the UK, and the only one that is open source. And it’s free to everyone, including providers.

Volunteer Manager

Our first product was web software for managing volunteering organisations such as our own YouAngel community, which we have taken the decision to suspend indefinitely though we are keen to develop it further with partners in the public and third sectors.
