About the service:

Three C's Support provides care and support to young people and adults who are living with a learning disability and have mental health needs. At the time of this inspection, 131 people were using the service.

People's experience of using this service:

Each person had their care and support needs assessed. People and their relatives were involved in their assessments and their views were considered during the process. Individual care and support plans were developed which captured the support people required to maintain their health and wellbeing.

People participated in activities of their choice. People were supported to continue their education and supported to find paid and voluntary employment.

People were free to explore and talk about their individual needs including their cultural, gender and sexual identities.

There were systems in place to ensure people were kept safe and protected from the risk of harm and abuse. Staff had gained knowledge of the types of abuse through safeguarding training.

Risks to people's health and wellbeing were assessed and a plan put in place to manage each potential risk.

Medicines were administered by staff to help manage people’s health care needs. Staff used medicine administration records (MARs) to record when people had their prescribed medicines. The MARs were audited for their accuracy.

The registered manager followed the provider’s recruitment processes which included the return of pre-employment checks. This ensured suitable staff were employed to support people.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and office based staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

People and their relatives were happy about the care and support they received. They also said the management of the service was of a good standard.

People commented that staff were supportive, showed them kindness, were caring and thoughtful in their approach with them.

People and their relatives contributed to their initial care plan and the review of their care.

The registered manager ensured people received a good standard of care through regular reviews and monitoring of the quality of the service.
