Quality Assurance

At CLC, we understand how important it is that our clients trust us to offer them the best advice and the highest possible standards of care.

That’s why we have a thorough recruitment, vetting and training programme for all our staff.

We are approved by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which regulates the Health and Social Care Act of 2008.

We were delighted that our most recent inspection report was excellent and demonstrated our full compliance and shows that our care service is meeting each of the standards that the government says you have the right to expect.

Positive About Disabled People

Community Life Choices holds the Jobcentreplus "two ticks" symbol.

This means we have been recognised as a positive place to work for disabled people, and have made commitments to employ, retain and develop people with disabilities.

The five commitments are:

• to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities
• to discuss with disabled employees, at any time but at least once a year, what both parties can do to make sure disabled employees can develop and use their abilities
• to make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
• to take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
• to review these commitments each year and assess what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans
