A Milton Keynes company and its specialist care homes have been been acquired by a London firm.

Abi Support Services, in Shirwell Crescent, Furzton, operates three homes for adults with autistic spectrum conditions, providing person-centred support for 10 service users.

Abi is a finalist in the Laing & Buisson Independent Healthcare Awards in the Autism Spectrum Services category.

The company has been acquired by Fortis Autism Services, an associate company of Precious Homes, based in Palmers Green. It provides specialist support and accommodation for vulnerable adults with learning difficulties and autism.

Barclays provided the finance for the deal under the now closed National Loan Guarantee Scheme. The scheme has been replaced by the government’s Funding for Lending programme.

Barclays relationship director Tony Peiris said: “Fortis has a clear focus on improving the quality of people’s lives and the loan provided the support to purchase three new homes which are vital for the local community in Milton Keynes.”
