Who are we?

HS Consultancy has excellent networks nationally , drawing on experience at all levels from central government to front line practice.
To achieve improved effectiveness of specialist and non-specialist services in contributing to the enhancement of mental health for all people, and the reduction of inequality for those from groups with ‘protected characteristics’ as defined within the Equality Act 2010.
To work in partnership with organisations that are responsible for mental health and social care to help them make progress toward clear goals for social justice and equality, ultimately for the benefit of their current and future service users.
HS Consultancy Values and Approach
Service user influence and benefit is central – we will always seek to establish a clear relationship between what we do and benefits for service users.
Equality and social justice – we believe that inequality will be tackled only through purposeful action to remove barriers to fairness. Our organisation commits to being an exemplar for equality and social justice
Integrity – we will be honest and fair in all external and internal dealings
Good stewardship of public resources – we believe that as an independent company we too must show good stewardship of funds we receive through commissions
