Care Quality Commission – UK Supported Living on being a Good provider…


With the release of the CQC report under the tougher new regime rating us as a “Good” service we are reflecting here at UKSLS on what we do to improve further.

We’ve identified improvements required and we’ve set up a small team to focus minds on how we improve having navigated this latest inspection – we wont stand still we will get better…..

Watch this space…

2015 will see CQC embed our tougher inspection regime as we rate more and more services and introduce special measures in April when our new regulations also come into force. As we do this we will identify and celebrate the good and outstanding services that do exist. But the old year closed with new reminders that not all care meets the standards we expect. It is vital that we continue to act on information about poor services and use our regulatory and inspection powers to protect people by encouraging services to improve or forcing their exit from the market. These are never easy situations as Merok Park showed but we will ensure that the safety and well-being of people using adult social care services remains our highest priority.




UK Supported Living is a fast growing and innovative community care provider based in Bournemouth and servicing clients in Dorset and Hants.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced administrative services manager to our UK Head Office.

UK Supported Living Services Ltd status update

UK Supported Living has grown rapidly and now supports clients across many commissioning groups in Dorset and Hampshire. We have been responding to the very many changes in the sector over the last year and a half. For the last 18 months the business has been:

1. Consolidating our rapid expansion

2. Developing a management structure that can successfully manage further growth beyond the entrepreneurial launch

3. Embedding our electronic  rota management system

4. Embedding our entirely new paperless and fully mobile care database

5. Navigating the impacts of austerity

6. Navigating the impacts of key employment tribunal decisions on pay and conditions in the wider sector

7. Implementing a unique salaried model for all employees

8. Embedding best practice in recruitment

9. Embedding a new training approach

10. Maintaining profitability within the above framework

The 10 point 18 month period of consolidation is now successfully navigated and this report lays out a vision for the next two years.

All of this hard work can be evidenced in our most recent Care Quality Commission audit under the new tougher regime which rated our service as “Good”.

There remain challenges but the investments to date place us in a strong position going forward.
