Horizon Care & Education has completed the acquisition of Aurora Care Young People’s Services, a provider of residential children’s homes located in the Northwest of England. 

The financial details of the transaction remain undisclosed. 


The additional services in the Northwest will enable Horizon to continue the expansion of its transitional support services for those leaving care or who require additional support between ages 16 to 25. 

Paul Callander, chief executive of Horizon, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Aurora YPS team into Horizon. The new homes have dedicated and caring staff, one of the reasons we were so keen to add these services to our portfolio. The location of the homes also extends our geographical presence in the North, increases our number of homes to 47, and widens our opportunity to care for more children and young people who deserve to have the best possible start to adult life.”
