Viking Care - Dedicated to Autism in Margate since 2016

Founded by Dr. Patricia Ryan-Allen and Lian Palmer, combining experience in social care, business management, education, and clinical nursing, Viking Care began in 2016 as a small family-run business providing bespoke care services to those in need in Thanet and Kent.

Our property, Ashmount, is a large detached home with plenty of character and rooms, a flourishing garden for activities, and is only a short walk from a variety of shops, cafés, parks, and Margate’s iconic beach featuring Dreamland!

“We aim to foster a warm and friendly environment, with a focus on staff wellbeing and development to tap into and realise the full potential of each team member.

Informed by emerging evidence-based care practices and psychology, and individually refined by direct supervision, support, and feedback, we are able to guide staff towards their goals in the organisation via free counselling services, and fantastic training packages in-house and offsite where necessary with financial support.

Our ethos is that staff wellbeing and happiness is paramount as this directly leads to the wellbeing and happiness of our clients.”
