Following an inspection in July, Stockport Council’s supported living service has been rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Inspectors visited the Council’s supported living service which provides personal care and support to adults in a number of homes across the Borough. The service was rated ‘Good’ across all aspects, showing it is safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.
Cllr Jude Wells, Cabinet Member for Adult Care and Health at Stockport Council, said:
“This is great news for Stockport and for the people in the Borough who use our supported living service. They are living as full a life as possible in a safe and protected environment. And it’s fantastic to see that the professional care and experience of staff, along with the support they give, being highlighted as a positive by inspectors.”
Stockport’s supported living service gives care and support to people living in twelve ‘supported living’ settings, so that they can live as independently as possible. People’s care and housing are provided under separate contractual agreements. CQC does not regulate premises used for supported living; this inspection looked at people’s personal care and support.
Inspectors from the CQC reported that:
“The service has been developed and designed in line with the principles and values that underpin Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. The principles reflect the need for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live meaningful lives that include control, choice, and independence. People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive for them.”
