We improve quality and business performance in the care sector

At Ladder to the Moon we support organisations to deliver outstanding customer experiences, engage staff and improve business performance. We do this by working with you to develop your people, processes and culture.

We focus on supporting you to create the conditions that mean your colleagues get the most out of coming to work, and that you and your customers get the most out of them being there. For us great performance means delivering fantastic outcomes for your clients, with people who love coming to work; being both efficient and creative; and consistently learning and adapting to improve.

As a CQC recognised provider we use approaches that incorporate consultancy, training, coaching and vibrant events that shift culture. We involve everyone in the organisation: senior leaders and frontline staff, people living with long-term conditions, and the wider community.

So far, we have supported 13 care services to achieve CQC Outstanding. 

Our relationship with the team at Ladder to the Moon has been a fundamental element in three of our homes achieving overall Outstanding. We are seeing tangible benefits for staff, managers and, most importantly, the people we care for.
— Paul Musgrave, CEO, Forest Healthcare

Our Story

Founded in 2001, Ladder to the Moon's purpose is for everyone experiencing care to flourish. As a social enterprise we have come a long way from our roots providing interactive experiences for people living with dementia, to become a recognised provider of innovative and impactful improvement programmes and consultancy in the care sector. Since 2005 the company has been led by Chris Gage who was inspired to transform care after his grandmother's experience living with dementia in a residential home.
