Your New Company

Innovate Services represents a step-change from traditional children's social work, SEND, and inclusion services delivery in favour of a far more agile approach. One that's proven to promote better outcomes for children and young people and exceptional local authority cost-savings.

Through its core brands - Innovate CYPS and Innovate Psychology - Innovate Services gives local authorities the capacity and capability to confidently introduce sustainable, innovative service-delivery models. Being a practice-led service, Innovate Services fully manages entire services, whilst drawing on its wide-ranging expertise to review each local authority client's service delivery objectively.

With Innovate Services by their side, local authority children's services and psychology services throughout the UK are gaining far more clarity. They are looking at their practice models and processes through an entirely new lens to achieve long-term change.

We are very proud to share that in November 2019, the Innovate CYPS team scooped an award at CYP Now in recognition for outstanding work within a particular local authority.
