Regulatory Information and Policies
We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission in England, the Care Inspectorate in Wales and the Regulator of Social Housing, and comply with the standards they expect.
You can find the CQC rating of each of our regulated offices here.
We are also accredited by the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS), which means our health and safety standards have been externally assessed.
Our liability insurance is with Zurich Municipal and our Policy Number is XAO-272040-0623; our MOJ Portal ID is C00108.
Beyond these requirements, we have also developed our own quality standards and benchmarks.
These are monitored by our quality and compliance team, our better practice team and our performance improvement team, who work with our operational staff.
We employ experts by experience who have learning disabilities and autism, as quality consultants. They carry out nationwide quality audits, following rigorous standards.
We were one of the first social care organisations to appoint an independent safeguarding chair, to ensure the highest level of scrutiny of our standards.
