About us

Professional Care Consultancy Ltd has been established since 2014, providing a comprehensive assessment and case management service throughout Norfolk and surrounding areas.

The company was set up by Stephen King (Independent Registered Social Worker) in response to his awareness of a gap in provision, for those people needing to navigate the complexities of accessing appropriate care and assessment.

Since its establishment, the profile of our typical work has evolved in response to a growing demand for long-term case management, alongside the more frequent requests for discreet assessments focussing largely on issues of mental capacity.

All of our work is undertaken by qualified and experienced social work professionals, all registered with Social Work England and committed to working within the ethical framework stipulated by the regulator.

Professional Care Consultancy’s approach is person-centred: Our work is tailored to meeting our client’s needs flexibly, with the aim of enriching their quality of life whilst protecting the individual’s autonomy.
