My Life rated ‘Good’ by CQC

We are absolutely delighted that our services have been rated as ‘Good’ in our first ever CQC inspection.
The inspection team met with our CEO Caroline and Operations Manager Tracey in August. As part of the inspection, they scruitinised all our systems and procedures to find out if we are safe, effective and well-led. Then on day two, they spoke with staff, members and parents to get an honest critique of our services.
The great news is that no issues were highlighted and we got really good feedback. But we’re not resting on our laurels. Even with a good rating, we know there’s always room for improvement!
