Care UK re-brands children’s services
Care UK has amalgamated its children’s services into a single division with Gary Dawkins as managing director. Care UK acquired a number of children’s care businesses over a three-year period. In November 2003 it bought Corvedale Care, in February 2005 Fostering Support Group, in May 2006 Promoting Positive Lives, in August 2006 Mosaic and in September 2006 Little Islands. The re-branding exercise brings all these businesses together under the title of Care UK Children’s Services. Care UK says the re-branding also introduces standard management practices to help the constituent elements of the new division work more closely together and cross refer services, with the aim of providing a seamless approach to users and their families, and to professional partners.
