Consultancy - our vision for improving outcomes for children, young people and families
In 2010 Shoba Manro Holly and Dr Sarah Temple joined resources as a Social Worker and GP respectively and formed a consultancy offering innovative solutions to Health and Care services. This consultancy, initially known as Doctor Sarah LLP, has grown into EHCAP - a social enterprise workng collaboratively with Education, Health, Care and Prison services.

Doctor Sarah LLP or EHCAP believe that Health, Care and Prison Services can join together with the Department for Education and work collaboratively to bring about effective transformational change - improving outcomes for children and young people into adulthood and developing public services that offer better value. With this in mind EHCAP offers training packages for staff interested in finding out more about the Special Educational Needs and Disability Pathfinders and Education Health Care Plans ....click here for details.

EHCAP worked with Virgin Care on the vision for their successful bid for children's community health services in Surrey and subsequently joined Virgin Care again working with them on their vision for Integrated Children's Services in Devon. EHCAP is now working with the teams rolling out the Virgin Care vision in both Surrey and Devon.
EHCAP improves outcomes for children, young people, families and communities through six key workstreams common to Education, Health, Care and Prison services :
- Putting children, young people and their families at the heart of what happens
- Acting early and intervening at the right time
- Knowing about local population needs and planning effectively
- Creating effective partnerships and networks
- Caring for professionals and enabling relationship centred care
- Golden thread of safeguarding for all children and young people
EHCAP believes that collaborative working and networking are essential to improving outcomes for children, young people and families and enabling public services that offer better value. EHCAP believes in building relationships with providers, commissioners and each other based on honesty, respect and encouragement - ensuring caring is at the heart of what we all do. We believe in developing and understanding what works well, what it is staff value and who/what they think is important - harnessing passion rather than dwelling on anxieties.
Understanding this purpose behind collaboration empowers individuals and groups to align views, values and outcomes.
