Carter Brown is a fast paced, dynamic company based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.

Our story

Carter Brown was founded in 2001 by two Children’s Guardians, who recognised a need for robust, evidence-based assessments within family proceedings. Since this time, working with children and families has been at the heart of what we do, whether in pre-proceedings to inform interventions and tailored support or providing assessments for panels to secure permanency for children.

We have since developed, diversified, and expanded our services across the UK to become the largest multidisciplinary provider of expert assessments, widening our specialism to include reporting directly to local authorities, within criminal law, on asylum and immigration matters,  and to Mental Health Tribunals.

In 2019, Carter Brown  joined the Antser Group, an integrated organisation, which strives to deliver transformation in health, education and social care. To learn more about Antser, click here.
