Creative Support – Manchester Mental Health provides care and support to people in ‘supported living’ settings to enable people to live as independently as possible. People’s care and housing are provided under separate contractual agreements. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) does not regulate premises used for supported living; this inspection looked as people’s personal care and support.

Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements on the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated regulations about how the service is run.
