Care homes

We’ve registered over 18,000 care homes and publish all of our inspection reports, which check on the essential standards of quality and safety.

When you look up a care home on our website, we show you

  • our latest report on whether national standards are being met
  • how to help us by sharing your experience or reporting a concern
