Broadbent & Co., was set up in 1996 by Steven Broadbent (Specialist Teacher) and Elizabeth Broadbent (Physiotherapist) to assess the support needs of disabled students to help them realise their full academic potential. Over the years, the company also developed their expertise in workplace assessments and assisting disabled employees to maximise their potential in the workplace.
In 2006 Broadbent & Co., became a limited company, Broadbent Assist Ltd., t/a Broadbent & Co. The Company has trained Needs Assessors and administrative staff to give a fully integrated and comprehensive service. After being actively involved in needs assessments and national committees, Steven Broadbent, stepped down in February 2014 as Managing Director and was succeeded by his son, Andrew Broadbent, who is currently a Needs Assessor, Director, and CEO of Broadbent Assist Ltd.
We have been assessing learning needs and employment needs for disabled people for over 20 years, undertaking over 24,000 Needs Assessments during that time. We match support and assistive technology solutions to individuals, to enable them to realise their potential in the learning and workplace environment.
