Key Assets Consulting – Home of Independent Expertise
Key Assets Consulting was founded in 2018 on the premise that professionals in Health Care, Social Care, Child Care and Legal services would benefit from an accessible, independent, one-stop-shop approach to delivering high quality, evidence-informed assessments and consulting services.
In 2019, we launched our Assess My Child clinics, delivering the same high quality services direct to parents. Our Assess My Child clinics operate an open-door referral process providing comprehensive, multidisciplinary services direct to families. Our passionately committed Psychologists, Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists support parents to unlock children's true potential.
Who We Are
Key Assets Consulting has grown from the strong roots established through its sister company Fostering First Ireland (est. 2005). FFI is a recognised leading, independent foster care provider with a reputation for high quality service delivery and positive partnerships with Tusla and foster carers. FFI has a proven track record in delivering fostering assessments and with the development of Key Assets Consulting, we have greatly increased the breadth and capacity of our independent assessment pathways.
Internationally we have additional links in the field of professional assessments and expert witness services; Carter Brown Experts, the leading provider of independent expertise in the UK is also allied to our group.
We are proud to be part of the Key Assets Group.
