Eden Futures

Eden Futures supports adults who have learning disabilities, enduring mental ill health, autism and associated complex behavioural needs. Sovereign partnered with the Group to further develop its service offering and geographic reach further.

Investment Background

Established in 1994, Eden initially created its community-based service offering in the East Midlands.

Sovereign first invested in Eden in 2010 to help the company meet the growing demand for its services across the country as individuals increasingly look to live as independently as possible, with care packages tailored to meet their particular needs.

Value Creation

  • Strategic acquisitions to expand geographic reach
  • Over 40 houses and apartment blocks developed on both greenfield and brownfield sites
  • Broadening of care service offering to include mental health and autism spectrum disorders

The Story So Far

Upon investment Eden operated six offices across Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire and its 560 staff provided long-term care for over 250 adults

With Sovereign’s investment a number of other providers have joined the Group, including HASS, Supported Living and Essential Futures. The combined Group has around 1,200 team members who support more than 680 people in locations from Cumbria and East Yorkshire in the North, and Warwickshire and Shropshire in the Midlands.

Today Eden provides a full range of services delivering exceptional outcomes to people with complex and challenging needs, and has used the expertise founded in learning disability services to support specialist needs in mental health and autistic spectrum disorder services further .

Sovereign continues to support the management team to develop the services offered whilst delivering the quality of care which remains at the heart of the Group’s offering.

Sovereign has really helped us, whether that be in the acquisition team, in the commercial team, or the marketing team, but also as part of our Board. It's incredibly knowledgeable about the social care sector.
