A small home for people with learning disabilities has been rated ‘good’ after an inspection.

Six people live at the home in Emmer Green, which is run by the company Voyage 1.

In a report published on 8 October 2019, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said people received safe care and were treated with respect and dignity. The abilities of residents were celebrated, and they were supported to have maximum choice and control over their lives in the least restrictive way as possible.

The service had been designed to ensure there were no identifying signs on the house or care workers’ clothing, to indicate it was a care home.

During the inspection the CQC spoke with three people living at the home and three members of staff and the manager, observed interactions during the day and checked people’s care records.

The CQC is the national, independent body responsible for checking the safety and quality of all adult social care services.
