Consultancy Hempsall’s joins the Coram Group
Early years consultancy and training organisation Hempsall’s has joined the Coram Group, and will become Coram Hempsall’s.
Hempsall’s, founded in 1999 by James Hempsall, has delivered a range of childcare initiatives for the Department for Education, including resources to support early years managers with business planning and decision making. Most recently the company has provided training for the experts and mentors in the government’s Early Years Experts and Mentors Programme.
James Hempsall, managing director, Coram Hempsall’s, said: “We are delighted to be joining Coram and becoming Coram Hempsall’s. Our mission remains the same – to achieve change and better opportunities for children and families.”
Dr Carol Homden, chief executive of the Coram Group said: “The integration of Hempsall’s into the Coram Group holds the potential to enable this dynamic business to grow and make even more difference to early years and childcare services available to families. We have a shared understanding of how to bring about change through finding solutions to the problems faced by the sector and families, and then taking practical steps to resolve these issues. I believe this development is a significant step forward combining skills and approaches to achieve lasting change.”
Established as the Foundling Hospital in 1739, Coram is the first and longest serving children’s charity in the UK. The Coram Group combines the expertise of 12 organisations in the common cause of creating better chances for children.
