An Angus care homes service for young people has been given a very good report by inspectors.
The Strathmore Centre in Strathmore Avenue, Forfar, received an unannounced visit from the Care Inspectorate on June 23 and the body has now published its findings.
Quality of care and support was graded as “good”, while qualities of environment, staffing, and management and leadership were all graded as “very good”.
The inspector states: “We identified the following key strengths a stable, motivated and competent staff team with very effective leadership providing high standards of care and support for children and young people, a safe and welcoming environment, (and) a continuing commitment to listening to children and their parents and to developing and improving service quality.”
Strathmore Centre is a care home service for up to four children and young people with complex and profound disabilities.
It provides 24-hour residential care on a “respite” or short-term basis.
The residential service is paired with a social work and outreach service, collectively known as the children with disabilities team, which is based in the same building and has the same manager.
The Care Inspectorate regulates care services in Scotland.
