Working in partnership with commissioners and healthcare professionals
We’re proud to work in close partnership with local authorities, NHS organisations and many other housing, health and care partners across the UK. We have a common goal to enable the people we support to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Our approach is based on transparency, accountability and a commitment to working positively with any agency or organisation. This can include, but is not limited to, engaging with:
- landlords to support people with their tenancies
- health professionals to enable people to access health services and to devise health action plans
- local community groups and services so people have access to a wide range of local activities, educational and employment opportunities
- advocates and volunteer befrienders to identify innovative ways to support the reduction of directly commissioned support
Commitment to quality
We are dedicated to providing the best care and support and our commitment to quality is demonstrated by our sector-leading quality ratings. In England, 95%* of our registered locations are rated as Good or Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission. 100%* of our Scottish and Welsh registered locations are rated as overall compliant by the Care Inspectorate and Care Inspectorate Wales.
