Adaptus is an Independent Consultancy Partnership.
We provide practical, value-driven advice to organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors.

We are experts in justice, offender management, prisons and probation. But we know that to be effective in any of those areas requires sound knowledge of housing, employability, drugs, mental and physical health and other disciplines.
And it means that we have to be great at strategic planning, change management, service design and bid management.

We bring the skills and experience necessary to succeed in all of these areas into one place and we combine them for the right solution for every client. We are market leaders in providing informed and innovative support to organisations in the justice sector. We have an unmatched track record in securing new business and supporting service design and implementation.

Our thought leadership, across a range of justice and related issues, is second to none. And our people bring a range and depth of experience you will not find elsewhere.
