Inspection carried out on 24 November 2011

During a routine inspection

A number of the people currently using the service have a variety of complex needs and communication difficulties and we were not able to communicate with them, however we observed interactions between them and the staff that support them.

We were able to speak with two people during the visit who were keen to tells us about their life at the home, how they spent their time and how the staff supported them.

One of the people using the service told us how staff supported them to be more independent and that this was good. They told us how they could now travel independently on the bus into the local town and how the staff travelled separately and would meet them. Another person told us about the activities they enjoyed at weekends such as going to watch football matches.

During our conversations with people they showed us lots of photographs of their trips out and activities they enjoyed with other young people at the service.

They told us they liked living at the home and the staff were nice and friendly, comments included �I like my key worker, she is nice and teaches me lots of things� and �I am happy here�.

We observed how people were supported throughout the day and structured activity programmes were in place. People were supported with a range of activities and therapies such as exercise programmes in the gym, gardening, working in the caf�, art work and using the drum kit in the music room.
