Surrey-based care provider, Eclipse Care Group, has relocated its headquarters to Surrey to expand its business operations.
The extended office space, which enables Eclipse to partner with complementary providers, has allowed the company to introduce a range of health and social care training as part of an accredited training centre.
The expansion into new offices has led to a partnership with neuro-physiotherapist, Kim Wilson, of Surrey Hills Rehab. The relationship was formed to provide additional support for residents with physical disabilities, acquired brain injuries and associated neurological conditions.
The provider also partnered with NVQ assessor Rachel Martin, as a result of the relocation, to provide a range of training, from mandatory level through to complex skills, with short courses and workshops.
Eclipse is committed to raising service standards through education and qualification and aims to help transform the care sector into a respected career path not only in Surrey, but across the UK.
Eclipse’s managing director, Anthony Holden, became wheelchair-bound after a life-changing skiing accident 17 years ago.
He said: “Recent figures suggest that only 37% of NHS budget is spent on 18 to 64-year olds with physical disabilities and mental health needs, despite the 64 year plus demographic representing over 51% of the NHS annual spend.
“Current trends suggest that the number of children diagnosed with autism, for example, may increase by 60% by 2020. Our care packages for children with autism focus on the individual’s needs. Helping them physically, mentally and emotionally, we know that parents feel the care system is complex. We can help by offering services channelled through health, social care and education.”
