Testimonials

During our inspection we found the organisation was very much child and family-centred, inclusive and underpinned by a genuine desire to offer as high a quality service as possible.
We spoke with relatives who told us they had every confidence in the staff’s abilities to provide outstanding care. One relative told us; ‘The staff are outstanding.’ and ‘Yes, can’t fault it. I would struggle without them. I wish I could have it full time.
We found the staff in the service worked closely with other professionals. We saw records of ‘Team around the Family’ meetings where members of the service attended with other professionals from a multi-agency backgrounds.

One commissioner told us; my feedback would always be very positive. I have worked with them now for around 5 years with some very demanding services. I have always found them to be an excellent service provider with a high quality and very stable staffing team.
