Staff and residents from a Sheffield supported housing service are celebrating after receiving a ‘Good’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Studfield Court supported living service in Sheffield

Sanctuary Supported Living’s Studfield Court, which provides self-contained flats for adults with learning disabilities, received the grade after the CQC commended the service’s promotion of “choice, control and independence”.

Noted in the report was the person-centred culture at the service, with residents having maximum control over their life choices. One resident said: “They [staff] help here, they are great. I get the support I need.”

Inspectors commented: “People’s support focused on increasing their opportunities and providing them with skills to become more independent.”

Residents were supported to be as independent as possible, with their choices being respected. One resident told inspectors how he was supported to get out and about to visit his family.

Also highlighted was the fact that staff were “kind and compassionate and treated people well”. Residents commented on the caring nature of staff, with one person saying: “They treat me with respect. They don’t tell me what to do, they ask me.”

Sanctuary Supported Living’s local service manager, Dawn Hughes, said: “We are thrilled to receive this ‘Good’ rating from the CQC. As a team we work hard to make sure this is a comfortable, happy home for our residents and it’s fantastic that this is being recognised.

“I look forward to continuing to pull together to make our service the best it can be.”
