Care Quality Commission
Caring Together is registered with Care Quality Commission (CQC), which replaced the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI).
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspects health and adult social care services in England to make sure that they provide safe, high-quality care. If a service needs to improve, CQC will take action to make sure this happens.
We are the leading local fully Care Quality Commission (CQC) compliant organisation providing homecare, respite and breaks specifically for family carers too.
In Cambridgeshire and Peterborough the CQC rating below applies.
In Norfolk the CQC rating below applies.
Centre of Excellence
Carers Trust nationally has awarded our organisation their Centre of Excellence quality award.
To achieve it we needed to demonstrate high quality across all aspects of our organisation, from its governance to the way that we engage with families and the support we deliver to them.
The award will help to position our organisation in the best possible way in a highly competitive sector and help us to develop and succeed in our aims. It should also give carers even greater confidence in the quality of service they can expect from us.
Each year we also send a Quality of Service Questionnaire to our clients. This is an opportunity for family carers and people with care needs to tell us what they think of the service we provide and how we can improve the service for the future to ensure we maintain our high standards.
