Stepping Stones’ homes advance National Care Group’s growth plans

Specialist adult residential care provider National Care Group has acquired Stepping Stones Care Homes Ltd, which operates three facilities in Northamptonshire.

The three facilities formerly operated by Stepping Stones – Phoenix House, Ryecroft Apartments, and Primrose House – provide rehabilitation pathways for those with complex mental health needs, supporting reintegration into the community. 

Mike Ranson (pictured) commercial director of National Care Group, said: “Since we began nearly five years ago, the focus has been on growth through the right strategic opportunities. We are continuing to rollout our ambitious growth strategy with further acquisitions as well as organic growth in the pipeline.

The three former Stepping Stones services will now be operated under National Care Group owned Wellington Support Limited.
