Business description

With a wealth of expertise and knowledge in supporting vulnerable young people, Project Aster has built an exceptional reputation for the provision of support, guidance, education, and accommodation for care-experienced children and young people across southern England.

Committed to helping young people develop the practical and emotional lifelong skills they need to live independently, the company offers a variety of support models in either shared or independent accommodation.
The business can provide its services to children and young people who require accommodation and support, such as looked-after children, unaccompanied asylum-seeking children, young offenders, and young people with disabilities and mental health issues.
Having built a highly reputable organisation, our client is now offering the
company for sale to facilitate growth under the impetus of new ownership.
