Children’s services provider Outcomes First Group has acquired Bryn Melyn Care (BMC) from its founder Brendan McNutt and three minor shareholders.

BMC provides therapeutic residential care, independent education, and integrated clinical services for children and young people with multiple and complex needs. Established in 1985, it delivers specialist services for young people aged 7-18, from crisis and assessment placements, through to long-term placements and preparation for independent living.

The acquisition extends Outcomes First Group’s portfolio by 27 specialist residential care homes, one independent day school, one specialist home for those with learning disabilities, autism and associated behavioural needs; and two specialist residential schools.

Richard Power (pictured), managing director for Outcomes First Group education and residential division said: “I am delighted to welcome the Bryn Melyn Carer team into our Group. Their excellent reputation and their approach fits very well with our own proposition and vision of building incredible futures for vulnerable children and young adults in the UK by empowering them to be happy and make their way in the world. Throughout our journey, we have joined forces with many established specialist schools and residential care homes; Bryn Melyn is a particularly exciting addition to our Outcomes First Group family.”

Bob Yetzes, chief executive of BMC added: “We are very pleased to be joining Outcomes First Group, an organisation whose values and vision mirrors our own. Together we will make an even greater difference to the lives of the vulnerable children we educate and care for.”
