Who We Are

ECL was established by Essex County Council (ECC) in 2009 as the UK’s first Local Authority Trading Company, providing care and support in Essex and West Sussex for residents at home and in local communities. Our company status means that although we are a private limited company, we are wholly owned by Essex County Council.
