Private care homes accused of failing UK children due to closures


One of the UK’s largest for-profit care chains has been accused of failing dozens of

vulnerable children by closing 28 residential homes, with staff warning they are struggling

to find placements for all the children.


This comes amid growing concerns about the sudden, large-scale closure of homes run by

private firms. Regulators have warned councils might have to step in and find placements

that could be a poor fit for children’s needs.


At EHP Childrens Homes consultancy, we support you to prepare your business case

based on robust contingency planning. This offers reassurance to Ofsted and Local

Authorities that you have a business plan that makes the sudden closure of your home

unlikely for any financial reason, both for Registration and Placements.


Our supported providers demonstrate sufficient levels of reserves to continue to operate

for an appropriate length of time in any potential stressed situation. This isn’t done by

building greater profit but on accurate forecasting, commercial knowledge and financial

management.



Is your consultant continually ‘horizon scanning’ to keep your potential business up to

date?
