Overall summary & rating


Updated 16 April 2019

About the service: St Anne's Dewsbury Supported Living is a small individualised service providing care and support to people with physical and / or learning disabilities, within their own home. At the time of this inspection one person was receiving the regulated activity of personal care twenty-four hours a day.

The care service has been developed and designed in line with the values that underpin the Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. These values include choice, promotion of independence and inclusion. People with learning disabilities and autism using the service can live as ordinary a life as any citizen. The service was delivered in line with these values.

People’s experience of using this service:

¿ The person told us they felt safe and happy. Staff had a good understanding of how to safeguard adults from abuse and who to contact if they suspected any abuse had taken place.

¿ Risk assessments were individualised and minimised risk whilst promoting independence. Staff were trained and competent to administer medicines.

¿ Staff felt supported with an induction and role specific training, which ensured they had the knowledge and skills to support the person. Meals were planned around the persons tastes and preferences.

¿ The person received a good level of support to lead a fulfilling life. They were supported to maintain good health and had access to healthcare professionals and services.

¿ The person was supported to have maximum choice and control of their life and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.
