Introduction

While you're busy caring for others. We'll take care of your business.

The care sector in the UK is set to grow over the coming years as our population ages, and it is important that your care business is prepared for the challenges and opportunities ahead.

Regardless of the type of care business that you run, there is a lot to think about - Care Quality Commission inspections, staffing, regulations, maintenance, health and safety – the list goes on.

At Albert Goodman, we understand that people who run care businesses are not accountancy specialists. So our team of care experts will help guide you through everything you need to remain compliant and profitable whilst growing your business, leaving you to do what you do best – care for your residents and service users.

Our clients include independent providers, groups, not-for-profit entities, and community interest companies.

In all our client relationships we add value with our in-depth sector knowledge and wide professional network, enhancing funding and legal relationships.

Our care team specialists are able to support you regardless of the type of service you deliver. We routinely work with adult social care (including residential, dementia and nursing homes for the elderly), children’s services, learning disability care, domiciliary care and supporting living.

We are also provide an independent statutory audit service, providing additional assurance to stakeholders as well as meeting statutory obligations.

Our team of care specialists includes our Care Sector lead Michelle Ferris and Care Sector Business Developer and Consultant Julie Hopkins. Their combined expertise means that alongside the traditional compliance services they are able to offer expert guidance and practical assistance on areas which are specific to the sector, such as:

  • Start-up’s – We often assist with new registrations, whether this be with budgets, cash flow statements and forecasts, or the Care Quality Commission (CQC) Financial Viability Reports.
  • Business continuity planning – ensuring that your care business is set up to continue to achieve your aims and objectives.
