UK: NFA Group acquires Outcomes First Group

NFA Group has acquired specialist educational needs group Outcomes First Group and adopted its brand, dropping its own.

NFA Group is owned by private equity group Stirling Square Capital Partners and it has acquired Outcomes First from Sovereign Capital Partners. News of the deal was exclusively revealed last July by EducationInvestor Global.

The new Outcomes First Group provides learning, life skills, and therapeutic care for children with complex needs, including autism. These services will be delivered under the brands: Acorn Care and Education; Hillcrest and Options Autism, as well as the National Fostering Group, an independent fostering provider based in the UK.

Outcomes First Group now owns and operates 37 schools, 77 residential homes and 28 fostering agencies.

David Leatherbarrow, chief executive of Outcomes First Group, said: “Bringing our two organisations together allows us to build on the range of education we provide to children and young people nationwide. 

“Our ability has now increased to offer a broader integrated pathway of care as an enabler for improved independence and supporting whole life education and care. We remain fully committed to caring for the children in our schools, homes and fostering families and also those in our small, specialist adult learning and care services.”
