Northern Healthcare support individuals living with a mental health diagnosis, learning disability, autism, and brain injury. Currently, the specialist adult health and social care provider has 15 services across the North West, Cumbria, Yorkshire and the Midlands. Northern Healthcare has ambitious plans to expand the company's reach and enable more vulnerable individuals to access the right level of support in their community.

Working alongside key public services including the NHS, Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) and local authorities, Northern Healthcare's recovery-focused multi-disciplinary team support individuals to achieve greater independence and quality of life.

The unique landscape of the health and social care industry led Northern Healthcare's leadership team to seek a long-term financial relationship with a financial organisation which shared their vision; to improve the lives of the people they support.

In August, a relationship with Shawbrook facilitated by Funding Friends Ltd, an experienced financial advisory firm was formed. 

The specialist knowledge and experience of the Shawbrook team made them a natural partner for us.
