Action Before Crisis

Action Before Crisis is the meaning of ABC Care. We believe we are the missing piece of the jigsaw. We offer a fresh innovative approach to looking after children in crisis.

ABC Care is a family run provider, and we believe this is evident in everything we do. Our directors are father & son team Chris Kennedy - who both share the same name! We're humbled by the recognition we've recently received by being awarded Tier 1 in virtually every category for the "West Midlands Regional Residential Framework Agreement". This recognises our quality & value for money.

ABC Care have 4 Residential Childrens Care Homes, situated in Lancashire & Cumbria. To maintain the 'family feel', each home can accommodate upto 4 young people upto the age of 17.

Our homes reflect that of a family home where Children & Young People feel safe, relaxed and cared for within a non-institutionalised setting.

Our Mission at ABC Care, is to offer Children & Young People in crisis a family environment where they can feel safe, become settled and relaxed, so we can bring some stability to their lives. Whilst they are with us they will receive understanding, encouragement and support from adults who care and who are trained to work in a professional and non-judgemental way.

We aim to equip all young people with the tools needed to succeed in life. We encourage the young person to feel very much part of the 'family feel' by participating in the daily running of the house and developing relevant semi independent living skills.

We firmly believe in transparency, and make all care plans, regular reports etc available 24/7 to social workers.


  • Carbon Footprint

    Icon 09

    As a family ran company we are always shocked at just how many miles our staff travel for us. So to offset our CO2 emmissions we decided to plant some trees.

    6 per month to be precise. ABC Care offset 6tCO2 through verified carbon reduction projects by planting 6 trees in the North West, UK each month.

  • Local Suppliers
