During a routine inspection

We spoke with two people who were studying at Mount Camphill Community. They told us �we are all friends here and I can choose what I want to do� and �I have a choice about what I do every day.� People told us that staff were supportive and helpful. We observed kind interaction between staff and people and that people were included in everyday activities. We saw that Mount Camphill had systems in place to gain consent and we observed staff requesting consent and consulting with people.

We inspected records and concluded that record keeping was exemplary and well planned. Information was updated as required and intervention from outside agencies was timely.

We saw that people were actively involved in planning all activities within Mount Camphill, including meal preparation and the planning of healthy diets.

We saw that medication was stored correctly and that procedures were in place which managed medications in a safe way. From speaking with staff we could be sure that the management of medication was taken seriously, whilst still seeking to empower people.

We saw that staffing levels were appropriate with trained staff who were regularly supervised and monitored. We spoke with staff who confirmed that the training they received was timely and appropriate to the tasks required of them.
