Helping care providers make big decisions

CSI Marketing Intelligence has provided market intelligence, business and marketing support to organisations in all social care sectors for a number of years.

Our services include tailor made consultancy to measure market opportunities, covering either or both geographical areas and market sectors.

We have been commissioned to identify locations for companies wishing to enter or expand within the care home and domiciliary care sectors.

In addition to our consultancy services in 2014 we created a local market intelligence model we now call MIDAS that can measure the shape of a local marketplace anywhere in England.


MIDAS is a market intelligence business model we created in-house that can measure the local market for a care home or home care location around any postcode in England and has provided many of our clients with crucial data to help them make important strategic decisions with regard to new locations or improving the performance of an existing one.

MIDAS provides an in-depth local breakdown of current and future populations, current competitor breakdown, future care demand and demographics in chart, table, and map formats. The MIDAS CONTROL version allows the addition of another location, whose performance levels are known to the client, and provides a valuable comparison with the subject location.

In the Autumn of 2020 MIDAS gained a baby brother called Snapshot which quickly and very inexpensively provides enough evidence as to whether or not a location is worth progressing.

To find out more information and for pricing please go to our MIDAS page.

Because CSI Marketing Intelligence has such an in-depth isisght into the social care sector in England, we assist clients who look to us for purchasing opportunities, both on and off market.

Our suite of Definitive Handbooks covers every region in England, detailing comprehensive financial and statistical data for every local authority for both the care home and domiciliary care sectors. Due to the varying situation that every local authority finds itself in, each handbook is like an anthology of short stories.

Mike Short, director of CSI Market Intelligence has published many reports and editorials on the social care sector, including six free annual reports entitled “Say Hello, Wave Goodbye” that charts the openings and closures during the years from 2015 to 2020. And we have just published a free 2021 Market Report into Domiciliary Care in England

The CSI acronym originally stood for Care Sector Innovations but was inspired by the Crime Scene Investigations TV series. Many of our reports and editorials are in fact investigations into the sector. Some of these can be found on this website, and all new “investigations” will be included there, so please sign up if you want updates.

CSI Market Intelligence is proud of the services we provide – the robust market data, and our ability to provide relevant information in a clear and concise way, providing a quick turnaround and offering great value for money.

The Definitive Care Home Market Handbooks

Having exposed the fact that local care provision across the country has been in a very sorry state for a number of years, CSI Market Intelligence has published a series of regional e:reports that show all the relevant market information for each local authority for both the care home and domiciliary care sectors.

The reports are real page turners. Every local authority, listed alphabetically in their own region, have their own stories – in fact the reports are more like a compilation of short stories.

To find out what is occurring in your area, and what is forecast to happen over the next 5 and 10 years it is easy, just buy a handbook. It really is a petty cash purchase providing valuable management information.
