How this check was done

Our judgement

People who used the service were safe and protected from abuse, or the risk of abuse.

User experience

People who used the service told us that they felt safe living at the service.

We were told that any concerns are reported to staff or the manager and are acted upon quickly.

Other evidence

The local authority had investigated an incident of serious concern under their safeguarding procedures. The action plan put in place by the local authority, had been addressed by the manager and significant improvements had been made to issues relating to care and welfare needs of people who use the service.

There have been no other safeguarding alerts raised since the service registered under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 in October 2010.

We saw from the list of training staff had attended, that all staff had been trained in safeguarding vulnerable adults and the relevant local authority procedures.

We saw that the service had a copy of the multi agency procedures in place for Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS). We were told by the manager that no one had a DOLS authorisation in place at present.
