Keys Group Ltd is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of South West Childcare Services and to welcome the young people it supports, and their staff team, to the organisation.
South West Childcare Services supports children and young people in residential children’s homes and leaving care services across the Plymouth and Somerset areas.
The group’s children’s homes are predominantly single or dual occupancy and provide 19 placements for vulnerable children and young people, while its leaving care services offer 10 placements for those aged over 16. The staff team of more than 70 people who support young people across the services will also join Keys.
Keys Group Chief Executive Trish Lee said: “We are delighted to welcome the children and young people supported by South West Childcare Services, and the staff who care for them, to the Keys Group family.
“Both organisations share similar values, alongside a focus on quality and an absolute commitment to providing the very best care and support possible for vulnerable children and young people.
“The acquisition of these services helps us ensure we provide care and support for young people in the places where they are most needed, with a focus on helping them achieve the best possible outcomes.
“As a group we wish to continue to grow, both organically and through the acquisition of quality-driven services, and this acquisition helps us to further achieve our ambitions.”
