Jewish Care is committed to ensuring that members of the Jewish community are able to support and care for one another.

Our vision

Jewish Care’s vision is of a society where people support and care about one another and are able to participate fully in their community.

Our purpose

We want to make a positive impact on the lives of Jewish people by creating and providing excellent social care that enhances wellbeing and inspires them to stay connected to their community.

We are a leading communal organisation with a charitable purpose working in London and South East England, with an ambition to work collaboratively, initiate debate, be a catalyst for change, a channel for advancement and a voice across the sector.

Jewish Care - promoting meaningful lives for our community.

Our values

Our five values are at the heart of the way we work. They are distinctively Jewish Care, driving how we act as individuals and as an organisation and shape our culture. They are:


We are ambitious, professional and passionate about offering high quality services delivered with dedication and sensitivity.


Working together, we actively encourage people to “go for it” and live meaningful lives.


We are innovative, adaptable, welcome new ideas and believe in finding solutions that work for each individual.


Everyone involved with Jewish Care is important and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.


We treat people fairly and are accountable for what we do and how we do it.


We are the largest provider of health and social care services for the Jewish community in the UK. Every week, we touch the lives of 10,000 people. 

We provide services to:

  • Older people
  • People with mental health needs
  • Holocaust survivors
  • People with dementia
  • People who care for others who have a variety of needs – e.g. mental health, older people, people with disabilities
  • People with MS, Parkinson’s, strokes and those who are visually impaired
  • People who are bereaved and those recently separated

We also provide youth leadership opportunities, recreational, educational, and cultural programmes, as well as half-term schemes.

We can only do this thanks to our amazing professional staff of 1,400 and the 3,000 dedicated volunteers who help make our work possible.
