Robinia Care buys Life Links group

Posted on February 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Bath-based Robinia Care, an organisation that specialises in support services for adults and young people with learning disabilities, has announced the acquisition of the Life Links group, which specialises in services for Autistic Spectrum Disorders in both a residential home environment and through supported living services. Life Links operates in Leeds, Doncaster and Wakefield. In addition, the acquisition adds to the company¹s portfolio of care contacts within a supported living environment. The organisation has 16 residential beds and a day care service in Wakefield and contracts to provide care services for 32 high needs service users in Doncaster and Leeds. The transaction, which has been funded by the Bank of Scotland, is the second major acquisition in the last three months and puts Robinia Care¹s turnover in excess of £30m with seven new services in the Midlands, London and the South of England to open in the spring. In March the organisation opened a sixteen-bed purpose built service in Derby.
