Welcome to the SDSA website
Formed in 2000 by central government as a school improvement organisation to support Leicester City Council, the SDSA has since broadened its remit to become a highly regarded leader of projects and partnerships across children’s services.
The SDSA is a highly effective organisation with a project-managing core team and a flexible group of high quality associate consultants. This combination consistently secures good project outcomes for children, young people and our partner organisations.
These company arrangements provide the SDSA with the necessary flexibility and capacity (both volume and quality) to deliver large projects rapidly. Although our turnover and workforce reflect our status as a small organisation, the company’s expanding work portfolio over the years as an unfunded, not-for-profit organisation provides clear evidence of the capacity to deliver large scale activities. Recent contracts include local, regional, national and international work.
The strong SDSA company ethos as a no-nonsense, outcomes-focussed organisation is fundamentally important. A strong conviction for enterprising public service runs through all of our work to secure efficient, practical solutions.
