Wellgate Care, a provider of residential care services to young people and adults with special needs, has acquired Folkstone-based MNP Complete Care Group. The purchase forms part of plans to expand its network of purpose-built and adapted homes across the South East.
MNP Complete Care, which runs four specialist care homes in Kent for adults with learning and physical disabilities, will retain its brand whilst becoming part of the Wellgate Care Group. All 120 MNP staff join the new business as recruitment and refurbishment plans get underway.
The acquisition is backed by Civitas Social Housing PLC, the first real estate investment trust dedicated to investing exclusively in portfolios of social homes in England and Wales.
MNP Complete Care runs Burnham House, Millfield House, Tristford House (pictured) and Sandgate Manor.
