Peak 15 (formerly Ashcroft Care Services) is a family owned business with Proprietor and Chairman David Holmes at the helm. We are proud to be forward thinking and inclusive – an organisation that strives to go beyond the obvious.

We support adults with learning disabilities. But our ethos, our raison d’etre is much more than that. It is about enabling people to live rich lives of real purpose.

Over the last few years there have been some positive structural changes that give people with learning disabilities the chance to have greater choice and control over their lives. But the people we support tell us they want more than that. There is still a gap between people with learning disabilities and other citizens and we want to close that gap.

We believe that we are all custodians of the Peak 15 vision – it is the decisions that all of us make, big and small, in the board room or in the kitchen, that make the difference. The journey to independence never ends.

Our mission statement

To support people to live the life they choose. For many, this means building a happy, high quality life of real value, in which potential is fulfilled and ambitions achieved. We enable this by employing the best people to deliver outstanding person-led support, focusing on the development of skills and attributes people require to live as independently as possible. Our approach is brave and passionate, and we work as a team with unity of purpose and total commitment. At Peak15 there are no limits.

Our Peak15 team

Our people are everything.

We employ some truly incredible people, some of whom have been with us since the start. To be part of Peak 15 is to embrace creativity and it’s no coincidence that we employ people with a big heart. Everyone at Peak 15 is encouraged to operate without ego, to take responsibility, to be honest and to have a strong moral and ethical code. Experience tells us that people who share our values stay at Peak 15.
