Experts in Supporting
Care Providers

Head Of Team (Partnerships)


Ellis Whittam provides exceptional quality Employment Law, HR and Health & Safety services to more than 300 care providers.

In such a highly regulated sector, we know how important it is for you to ensure that you remain compliant. We help you comply with the law and reduce risk to your business and the vulnerable people you work with.

The CQC repeatedly identifies safety as their single biggest concern, citing a lack of safety processes and a culture that prevents learning from mistakes and near misses.

Our services bring safety and security to your business and the people you care for.
