“Well I think the staff there are really good. Since he’s been there he’s come on leaps and bounds”.

“I’m involved in everything they do with him…if I do have any queries they do address them”.

There are 3 people living at in the home and they all had complex learning disabilities. On the day of the inspection two of the people who live at 9 New Hutte were at a day centre.
