Our mission is to become the leading care home operating software in the UK and to fundamentally help care providers to offer a better service to families.
We want to simplify and enhance the day to day operations of care homes and be a trusted partner in the digitisation of enquiries, occupancy and finance processes.
Care home management is hard. With arduous paper based enquiries, hundreds of tiresome spreadsheets, consistent double entry of information and complicated invoicing and payments.
But fear not, Found by Lottie is here to help. By providing a one-stop digital service, you can run your day-to-day tasks from logging and tracking enquiries, all the way through to managing a resident’s stay and automating their billing. Found can save each team member up to half a day per week on admin. Time better spent.
In 2020, brothers Will and Chris Donnelly decided they wanted to shake up the social care scene by building a care home marketplace, Lottie, which would empower care seekers to find the brightest and best care homes in the UK.
Quickly becoming the UK’s fastest growing marketplace in the sector and the second most visited website in the care space, the insights gained across tens of thousands of enquiries highlighted a huge discrepancy in the response times and quality when handling care seekers. Across thousands of homes, the brothers conducted in depth research which highlighted 68% of enquiries do not get responded to within 48 hours.
To really change the sector for the better, Will and Chris realised that improving care home operations and helping care homes to transition to digital solutions was the crucial step. So in 2022, they built Found by Lottie to lead the digital revolution within care homes.
We’ve built a team of tech enthusiasts, bright problem solvers and genuinely lovely characters who have a real passion for improving structures, processes and experiences in care.
Prior to Lottie, Will spent 5-years at CBRE, where he advised on £2.5bn of healthcare transactions, supported the NHS during COVID-19 and established himself as one of the UK's leading social care advisers.
Before Lottie, Chris founded and was CEO of Verb Brands, a company he grew into one of the world's most recognised luxury digital agencies with a global client base including: Bugatti, Jimmy Choo & Net-A-Porter. Chris was named as part of Forbes 30 under 30 and has been a NED for several highly successful tech start-ups.
Before joining Lottie, Jordan was one of the founding members of a successful energy switching start-up that saved UK households hundreds of millions. Passionate about solving problems, disrupting industries and implementing technology, Jordan’s mission is to make sure Found is the perfect product for you.
