Inspectors have praised all areas of a scheme in March which provides support for up to 21 people with learning disabilities.

The March Supported Living Scheme was rated as ‘good’ across the board by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an unannounced inspection last July.

Inspectors said the scheme was safe, adding: “Staff were knowledgeable about recognising and reporting abuse. Staff’s knowledge of safeguarding vulnerable adults procedures showed us people could be confident any concerns would be reported to the appropriate authorities.”

They found that people’s privacy and dignity were consistently respected by all staff.

The report highlighted the scheme’s recruitment processes, which they described as ‘robust’, adding: “Records we looked at confirmed staff were only employed after all essential safety checks had been satisfactorily completed. The scheme ensured staff were provided with the training to ensure people’s needs were met in a reliable way,”
