We are pleased to announce that Precious Homes Ltd has been awarded a Good rating following a recent inspection from the Care Quality Commission. The supported living service is provided at two locations in London, where the team supports adults with learning disabilities and autism. 

The report, which can be found in full on the CQC website, rated Precious Homes Ltd as good in all categories – safe. effective, caring, responsive, and well-led.  

 

As well as reflecting that the team understands the importance of CQC’s “Right Support, Right Care, Right Culture” guidelines, which focus on respect, equality, dignity, choices, independence, the CQC report also demonstrates that the team actively lives the Precious values of kindness, involvement, quality of life and progress.  

Paula Hughes, Operations Manager for the area, commented: “The team at the service do an amazing job at supporting people to live their ‘best lives’ and I believe this is clearly evidenced in the report. The Inspector noted in an email that David Forrest and his team are working at the ‘top end of good’ and commented that it was a pleasure to see the good work that is taking place and the impact it’s having in enriching the lives of the people receiving support.” 

 

Key quotes from the report include:  

A relative commented, “[Name] appears to be very settled and is enjoying living with his new family.”
