About Cosanta Care Consultancy


James Clarke knew he had always wanted to run his own company.  He felt he had developed the requisite skills needed to deliver a successful business.  With over 25 years' experience within Social Care both as a practitioner and a senior manager with a reputation for innovation and effective change management in several large organisations he also felt that the time was right to strike out on his own.


So in 2014 knowing that the time was right Cosanta was ready to be launched.  The business provides a consultancy and support service for both Local Authorities and private companies that are involved in social care for children and families. The services offered involve all aspects of Social Services but primarily involve developing and driving improvement plans within the areas of Fostering, Adoption Residential Child Care and Child Protection.

The Services We Provided


Following extensive research and planning James was ready to progress to the next phase of his plan.  Sue Matthews & Co. was actually recommended to him, however, after contacting other Accountants and then speaking with Sue he soon felt comfortable and confident with the advice he heard. 


During the initial free consultation both parties obtained a clear understanding of what was needed to progress the concept into a business.  Understanding James' needs and providing clear and concise information and advice allowed him to make the decisions required at that time. 


Sue Matthews and the team understand the issues facing a Start Up and the many things that need to be thought of, both at the early stages and throughout the initial period.  Ongoing support with a friendly and helpful team that knows both the business and the individual(s) is highly valued.  James also included his wife in some of the discussion with Sue as the decision to ‘go along’ often involves the family members.


The advice provided to James included company structure options, VAT requirements and options and advice and guidance on TAX.  We also discussed general bookkeeping that would facilitate management accounts and year-end accounts to be done.

Client Comments


''Deciding to start up on your own certainly does present challenges, although after speaking with Sue we very quickly realised that we were in safe hands. During the entire process we found the advice invaluable, all options were explained to us and everything was carried out in a professional manner but with a personal touch.''


''We would certainly recommend Sue Matthews to anyone even considering a Start Up, the advice we received was excellent.''
