We’re changing social care to change lives.

We’re people that  care.

Just ask our residents.

Who, why, where?

Who are we?

With a combined experience of more than 70 years in care environments, we have an acute insight into what it takes to deliver safe and professional services and ensure caring and supportive residential homes for all our service users. Family is our maxim and our vision is to create places which clients are proud to call home.


Clayton Bryce founded Valicity care services in 2017. Before this, he worked for Thanet Healthcare Ltd, which focused on adults with various mental health concerns. Having gained experience in the care sector through this work, Clayton decided to focus on working with young people. He completed a degree in sociology and criminology, with a dissertation focused on the link between young people’s mental health and crime, particularly gang and knife crime. Clayton then led a successful joint venture between Thanet Healthcare and a young people’s mental health organisation. It was this which confirmed his desire to create a new service which is focused on young people and Valicity was formed.

Why now?

Through my experience working in the Adult Social care sector, I found there was a limit to the success and the outcomes that are achievable. The decline in opportunities for young people from deprived backgrounds motivated me to have a focus on working and supporting young people. We have the view to tackle issues such as violent crime, addiction, undiagnosed mental health issues, homelessness and the raft of other obstacles that are faced by young people in todays society. – Founder Clayton Bryce BSC

What next?

After 3 years of development, we are proud to announce the opening of Shiloh House which is an Ofsted registered purpose built building that supports children with various behavioural concerns. Valicity is currently expanding its services across the country to include Croydon, West Sussex, Luton & Hammersmith & Fulham and will be supporting young people and families right across the country. The answer to young peoples problems doesn’t just lie in finding them accommodation, there is far more that needs to be done. With this in mind Valicity is partnering with various organisations across the country, to implement supplementary and special needs education services and also bringing back community and youth centres.
