Heritage

Chris Higgins opened his first home, in 1986. This successful establishment is still owned and run by him to-day. In 1996 he and his partner Sue founded Care through the Millennium (CTTM). There are currently 24 residential homes for clients eighteen years plus who need support and care.

CHRIS HIGGINS | Chairman

Chris is the Chairman and Owner of the CTTM group of companies. Profoundly affected by his Mother’s death through lack of proper care practices in a residential home, Chris looked at his own life & decided that he would go into the business of Care. He was determined that only the highest quality of care would be good enough.
His first home, Hillside, was, not surprisingly, for Elderly Residential Clients which he opened in 1986. This successful establishment is still owned and run by him to-day.
In 1996 he and his partner Sue founded a new company called Care through the Millennium (CTTM).  Under the umbrella of CTTM there are 24 residential homes for clients from eighteen years of age onwards who need support and care.

Sir BOB DOWLING | Chairman

Sir Bob joined CTTM following a very successful career in Education. This career began over forty years ago when he graduated as a teacher at St Marys College, London University Institute of Education. He set out on a road through education that was one day destined to lead him to the bowels of Buckingham Palace, where, during her Jubilee Year, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11 conferred on him the status and title of Knight Bachelor in recognition of his services to education.
During his educational journey Sir Bob found time to add to his academic portfolio. At Cambridge Institute of Education he graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Experimental and Educational Psychology. He gained a masters degree at Nottingham University and A Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties ((Dyslexia) at Northampton University. He is a Master Practitioner in NeuroLinguistic Programming and is a certified NLP Coach.

A Better Alternative To Hospitalisation

A Better Alternative to Hospitalisation

Intellectual Disability inpatient beds are in short supply and what long-stay hospital facilities are available are only intended for short-term assessment and treatment. So those being cared for in large, isolated institutions – and especially those individuals who are harder to place, including people with Intellectual Disabilities and challenging behaviour – now need to be supported in community settings. CTTM provides intensive, community-based support which is preferred as an effective alternative to hospitalisation.

Pathway

Moving from a long-stay hospital can create challenges for individuals who have often lived in isolation. The transition to facing the outside world – sometimes for the first time in years, or even in decades – can be frightening. But we believe that people with even the most enduring & complex needs should be given the opportunity to be supported to live as independently as they can within a community wherever possible – learning to live a completely new way of life. Even where others have failed, our complete care pathway has helped service users move from hospital settings right through to achieving independent living within a realistic timeframe.
