Leading care provider Ludlow Street Healthcare is to join Holmleigh Care Group from 2 December 2021.

Ludlow Street Healthcare is a best-in-class provider of specialist care, education and treatment services for individuals with complex mental health needs.

Set up in 2006 by healthcare specialists, Ludlow Street has since developed a strong reputation for its ethical person-centered approach, community-focused settings and consistent positive outcomes. Ludlow Street comprises 16 residential care homes, three mental health hospitals and a further education college across England and Wales.

Holmleigh Care was founded in 2000 and provides essential residential care, supported living and domiciliary care services to adults with a varied range of disabilities and challenges, with specialist expertise and practical experience in helping those with complex and challenging behaviours. Holmleigh provides its services across 31 homes in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Swindon and Worcestershire.

Ludlow Street’s experienced and well-regarded senior management team of practicing clinicians, health, and education professionals will stay with the business to support the combined Group on its next phase of growth and to ensure continuity of care and service.

Greg Lapham, Chief Executive Officer, Holmleigh Care, said:

“Ludlow has an excellent reputation for providing high quality care services across its portfolio of homes, hospitals and its education college, especially among its local authority partners. We’re proud and excited that it is joining the Holmleigh Care Group, as both companies will be able to utilise each other’s expertise and complementary footprint for the benefit of the people we support, their families and advocates, and the Local Authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups and the NHS.

The Holmleigh and Ludlow teams are delivering on the government’s objective of improving health and care services so that more people can live in the community with the right support, and today’s transaction means the larger, combined group, has a greater ability to provide critical support to service users with a broad range of learning disabilities and mental health needs.”

David Lawrence, Chief Executive Officer, Ludlow Street Healthcare, remarked:

“This is an exciting new chapter for Ludlow Street Healthcare as we approach our fifteen year-anniversary. The growing prevalence of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons and Huntingdons, and improving brain injury survival rates, due to improved clinical care for service users, as well as the prevalence of learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, and an increase in mental health problems, means there is a need for high-quality, care and education options.  We take great pride in providing safe, compassionate and dignified care to help our service users service users live the best life they can and fulfil their potential.

We look forward to working with Holmleigh Care Group to build on Ludlow Street’s strong foundations maintaining continuity in our high levels of service and expanding our operations to provide further support to the country’s social care sector.”
