Witherslack Group has provided education and care to children and young people with Special Educational Needs since 1996, resulting in life changing experiences and countless stories of success. They specialise in helping children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs, communication difficulties (autistic spectrum conditions, Asperger’s Syndrome, speech, language and communication needs) and challenging behaviour.
We have had a long partnership with Witherslack and it’s been very rewarding to help develop and grow an outstanding business that delivers so much for its stakeholders, from pupils and parents to Local Authorities, employees and shareholders. At its heart is the ethos of always doing the right thing for disadvantaged young people and improving outcomes.
It was our commitment to supporting the highest standards in education and care that enabled us to forge a partnership with Witherslack’s management, who are passionate about the education and care they provide, and wanted a private equity partner that shared that philosophy.
