About Us.....

GS Social Care Solutions Ltd is a specialist social care provider. Established since 2006 and fully compliant with the Care Quality Commission and Ofsted, we are passionately proud of our quality of care.  

We are primarily a learning disability service, who focus on what people CAN do, instead of what they CANNOT DO. We have specialisms in Autism and those with sensory and communication needs. However, our staff team are diverse in skills, knowledge and expertise and this lends to our services to all age groups and abilities..

GS Social Care Solutions is a family run Business set up in June 2006 and officially opened by the Mayor of Hyndburn on 28th July 2006. 

GS Social Care Solutions is owned and managed by Dorothy and Glyn Gould, a husband and wife team, with years of experience in care delivery, particularly concerning the learning disability sector. The service was originally set up by the couple and 2 of their 3 daughters - Faye and Ashleigh - hence the name GS (Gould Sisters). Together, using initiative and a family-like approach, and the backing of a great team they transformed GS Social Care Solutions Ltd from an average Domiciliary Agency to a social care one stop shop. Now, Dorothy, Glyn, Faye and Ashleigh use this foundation to continue growing GS Social Care Solutions Ltd and to also continue delivering the great services that the company has to offer. It is more of a family operation than your standard care organisation.
