Priory Group acquires special education provider in Lancashire

Mental health services provider Priory Group has acquired Progress Care, a specialist education and care group in Lancashire.

According to a press release, Progress operates 44 beds across 10 care homes, including two homes for children and eight for adults. It also runs a school for more than 20 young people.

The Preston-based group specialises in supporting children and young adults with severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviour and autism.

Priory Group is best known for providing treatments for addictions and conditions including depression and anxiety. The firm says it treats more than 20,000 patients a year at sites across the UK.

It said the acquisition would add to its existing education services in Preston, through Oliver House School.

Chief executive Tom Riall said: “Progress is an exceptional business with a reputation for excellent quality care and education – it is a fantastic fit for Priory, and I am delighted to welcome the team to the group. This is a strong partnership that will contribute to our education and children’s services.”

Shah Zaki and Peter Bull from Orbis Partners advised Progress Care on the deal.
