Christchurch Group is one of the UK's largest providers of specialist, residential care for adults with an acquired brain injury. It has an excellent reputation for slow-stream rehabilitation, supporting and guiding the adults in its care to develop and maintain social and functional skills.
At the time of acquisition, the Group operated from adjacent facilities in Northampton in a community setting.

An estimated 135,000 people are admitted to a hospital each year as a consequence of a brain injury in the UK and Christchurch Group has seen demand for its services increase.

- The Group acquired Woodlands MS Society Respite Care Centre: Woodlands provided respite care for full-time carers of individuals with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) from a purpose built site on the edge of York.

The site has been reconfigured and now operates as a full-service neuro-rehabilitation centre providing long-term care for 28 patients with a wide range of neurological conditions.
- The Group also won 'Complex care provider of the year' at the HealthInvestor Awards 2012.
