Clairfield advises Clifford House on the sale to Advanced Childcare Limited

Clifford House, provider of residential care services for children with special needs, was sold to Advanced Childcare Limited.

Established in 1989, Clifford House is the largest provider of residential care services for children with special needs in the West Midlands. It also provides high-quality education for children who are unable to attend mainstream schools. The business offers flexible packages to children and young people with complex emotional problems and related behavioural difficulties. It caters to some of the most hard-to-place children.

Advanced Childcare Limited is a specialist provider of children’s care and education services with a combined portfolio of 49 homes, providing care services in rural, semi-rural and urban environments. Advanced Childcare Limited is funded by a US private equity group, GI Partners.

“I found Clairfield to have a very client centred approach, initially assisting us to develop an exit strategy that met the differing aspirations/needs of the partners. Clairfield’s sector knowledge and relationship were key in attracting the right buyer for Clifford House. We are delighted with the outcome.” – John Brierley, Managing Director
