Story

Focus Care Wales was established in 2006 by Mike & Denise Picton. The agency was named to reflect Mike & Denise’s Values and Principles, therefore the name FOCUS came into being with our strap line “Paying attention to the details of life”.

Together they ran Focus Care Wales as co-directors until 2019, when they decided to retire and sold the Company to Expect.

Expect is a registered, not for profit company, offering a range of social care services in the North West of England and North Wales to vulnerable people. We offer support to people who have Learning Disabilities, Mental Health Issues, Dementia, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Acquired Brain Injuries, Personality Disorders and other Complex needs.

Initially named South Sefton Mental Health Housing Group Ltd, the charity is proud to have provided services to the people of the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton since March 1989. The CQC registered charity was born out of an imperative to move people with Learning Disabilities and Mental Health Problems from large institutions, where they had lived for many years, and to provide them with supported accommodation closer to their communities of origin.

Now named Expect Limited, we continue to offer Residential, Supported Living and Day Care, including Domiciliary services to adults experiencing a range of vulnerabilities

Expect Limited is a Registered Charity, No. 701331. Expect is a company Limited by Guarantee, No 2357285. Registered in England, U.K.
