NCF Consult – a service for care organisations

NCF Consult provides innovative consultancy solutions and tailored training to support the needs of adult social care services in this challenging environment. We provide strategic action planning, advice and training to support services to be high-quality, cost-effective, and to implement change in order to improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities in adult social care. 

Who are our consultants? 

Our consultancy is provided by our skilled and experienced staff team and hand-picked senior professionals bringing expertise from health and social care, social work, learning and development, local authority, housing, and other public sector organisations. All work is overseen and quality assured by the senior NCF team, providing you with the unique insight and clarity that comes from being the national membership organisation for not-for-profit adult social care organisations.

As a new member of NCF we were pleased to discover the capability of NCF Consult and have already used it for a pre-CQC inspection. It resulted in a very thorough report and list of recommended actions. Later in the year we intend to use NCF Consult for a Trustee training session. We've found NCF to be very responsive and we look forward to deepening our use of their information and other support  services.

The NCF Consultants came in before a CQC inspection in one of our Registered Care Homes, and spent the day at the service. They were very professional, knowledgeable and thorough... NCF provided us with ‘fresh eyes,’ giving us the opportunity to identify the areas we needed more specific focus on... it was an extremely useful exercise to give us confidence and focus to ensure that the manager, the team and the service presented as well-organised, focused and competent and positively against the KLOEs. It was well received by our staff and residents, and we are grateful for the effective advice and recommendations that have had a positive impact on the way we work and our CQC rating.
