Funding Partners

Our Business Development team at The Aurora Group has a wealth of experience working with Local Authorities (LAs) and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), building strong partnerships that enable honest and open dialogue. As a result, we have excellent working relationships with over 80 funding authorities across the UK, who commission a mixture of day, outreach and residential placements.

Our Business Development Managers are each allocated separate geographical areas, so that LAs and CCG partners can work with one key contact for all their commissioning needs. This builds trust and allows us to more effectively overcome challenges and maximise opportunities. We understand the pressures faced by our funding partners to achieve the best outcomes for children and young people, and we continually adapt our services so that we remain a key part of their local offers. We keep our partners regularly updated on changes within The Aurora Group, to enable them to commission the most appropriate education and care provision.

The Aurora Group subscribes to consortium commissioning groups such as CCRAG (Children’s Cross Regional Arrangement Group) and is an active member of numerous purchasing frameworks and systems. Our host authorities and those further afield speak very highly of the service provided for their children and young people and the successful relationship they have with our wider team.
