Chesterfield-based Heathcotes Group is one of the UK’s most experienced providers of specialist residential care for adults with learning disabilities, mental illness and associated challenging behaviours. The company is committed to providing a better quality of life and greater opportunities for some of the most vulnerable people in society.
Heathcotes’ person-centred care enables its service users to experience a happy, fulfilled life and be as independent as possible. The company’s services help many individuals to learn new skills, strengthen existing skills and ultimately achieve a transition to a setting outside of residential care.
Heathcotes Managing Director, Brendan Kelly, said:
“With firm roots in Chesterfield, including two directors who were born and bred in the area, Heathcotes Group is a passionate advocate of the town and we had no hesitation in becoming a Chesterfield Champion. The company sponsors Chesterfield Ladies FC and is strengthening its commitment to the area with a number of exciting projects coming soon. Since forming in 2004, Heathcotes has developed numerous regional services, creating local jobs and supporting the local economy. We believe that Chesterfield has a huge amount to offer as a regional centre for business, leisure, retail and high quality education, including one of the largest colleges in England.”
Heathcotes Group has also made a major contribution to employment in Chesterfield through its extensive apprenticeship programme developed in partnership with Chesterfield College. It has facilitated over 600 apprenticeship starts in the past five years and Heathcotes recently won Large Employer of the Year at the Learning Unlimited National Apprenticeship Awards 2018.
Heathcotes Group is one of the UK’s fastest-growing specialist care providers with over 60 services nationwide and plans to open more in 2019. The company is rated by the Care Quality Commission as one of the top 20 adult specialist care home providers in the UK with 86% of services rated Good or Outstanding. The group has become a trusted partner to over 50 local authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups.
