Challenge to CARE was established to provide robust developmental reviews of your teams and services, enhancing your skills and ways of working to ensure you deliver better care for people. We do this by:

Strategic analysis of your service to impact on results

Developing leaders to deliver more through their teams

Focussing individuals and teams to deliver better outcomes

The pressure on services has never been greater to deliver value for money, high quality and effective services. Teams and individuals are part of this constant change and sometimes this can become overwhelming. We focus on how we support you and your team to identify what key changes you can make within existing resources which will make a positive impact on the services you provide.

Understanding change and the impact it has on you individually and collectively is the first step in taking control and moving forward to reach goals that may sometimes previously have seemed unachievable.

Providing services for people within the care sector is as demanding and challenging as it gets. Balancing the demand for high quality, effective services that deliver better outcomes, with the continuous requirement for significant levels of efficiency is THE challenge for the future. Ensuring that the service is provided with care and compassion tailored to the individual is a non-negotiable pre-requisite.

Our services and approach put CARE and compassion into practice enabling individuals and teams to overcome the obstacles that can get in the way of providing consistently high quality services.


Do you provide a service for people in a range of settings?

Does your success rely on high performing teams?

Are you required to meet a range of regulatory requirements?
