About Care Through The Millennium.

Care Through The Millennium (CTTM) run homes providing specialised healthcare and rehabilitation services for adults with learning disabilities, mental health and Neurodisability needs.

Chris Higgins
Chris is the Managing Director 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 20 residential homes for clients from eighteen years of age onwards who need support and care.

CTTM is driven by a dynamic, based on the belief that only the best will do for the people vulnerable entrusted to its care.

Sir Bob Dowling
Sir Bob is the Chairman of CTTM. He joined the company 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.

He was offered his first Headship in Birmingham at the age of 32 where his innovative approach to teaching and learning made him a person of interest in the field. He went on to found the largest secondary school in Europe dedicated to helping pupils with learning difficulties. His time here was an outstanding success and his leadership and drive is recognised in his OFSTED inspection reports. From here he joined the Birmingham LA Inspectorate where he remained for four years.

OFSTED inspections identified schools whose progress was deemed unsatisfactory. Bob was one of a select group of Headteachers considered to have the talents required to help those schools that were having difficulty in meeting the needs of their pupils. He successfully led four such educational institutions back to robust health.
His last assignment was at George Dixon International School and Sixth Form. Here he led a school in special measures and with low pupil numbers back to educational excellence. When he retired in 2007 the school roll was around 1300.

Sir Bob’s retirement was merely a transition to Birmingham LA as part of a team tasked with developing an Academy programme within the city. From here he joined CTTM in October 2009.

The managers and staff of the individual CTTM units all receive extensive training and support, including from the central team which is made up of professionals in the fields of HR, training, finance and marketing. Together with other external advisers, the CTTM team bring together many years of experience and care to the running of the company, so benefitting the clients.
