Adult Social Care

LCS Limited consultants have many years’ experience of working in social care in permanent, senior management positions and we have acted as interim managers in numerous departments. As consultants, we have project and programmed managed small and large change and improvement programmes and have designed and delivered specialist training for social care and health professionals in over 50 authorities and health bodies – as well as to private and not-for-profit providers.

Social care has been the main focus of our consultancy and training in recent years.  We have particular expertise in safeguarding, reflective supervision, training and developing social care and health staff (as well as providers across all sectors) and working with managers and staff to implement change.  Through our own internal processes, we keep up to date on all contemporary developments and how they impact upon practice.  From changes to legislation and regulation to the impact of Case Law and the learning from SARs and best and better practice.

As with social care and its ‘person-centred approach’, our work is outcome-focused and aims to deliver the best possible results for those that commission us. 

We have worked for nearly 100 local authorities since the practice was formed in 1998.
