This inspection took place on 28 September 2016 and was announced. Creative Support – Wolverhampton Service provides community support and personal care to adults with learning disabilities and mental health issues. At the time of our inspection there were 18 people receiving personal care.

There was a registered manager in post at the time of the inspection. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

People’s relatives told us they were confident their family members were safe with the staff who provided their care and support. Staff were aware of their responsibilities in protecting people from harm and knew how to report any concerns about people’s safety. Risks to people had been assess and were managed in a way that did not restrict people. Some relatives felt their family members would benefit from a more consistent staff team. There were systems in place to ensure people’s medicines were managed safely.

People were asked for their consent before care and support was provided. People received support to maintain a healthy diet and were assisted to access healthcare services when required.

People were supported by staff who were friendly and kind. Staff knew people’s needs and preferences and people were supported to make their own decisions where possible. Staff understood the importance of supporting people in a way that protected their privacy and dignity and promoted their independence.

People and their relatives were involved in the planning, delivery and review of their care and support. Staff knew people well and were aware of people’s likes and dislikes. People were aware of who to contact if they were unhappy about any aspect of their care and support and there was a system in place to manage complaints.

People, relatives and social care professionals expressed positive views about the service. People and their relatives had been asked to give feedback about the service they received. This was then used to develop and improve the service. Quality assurance systems were in place to monitor the standards of care and support provided and the provider was aware of their responsibilities as a registered person.

We were unable to speak with any of the people that used the service due to their complex needs. However we spoke with the relatives of three people that used the service. We also spoke with six staff and the registered manager. We looked at the care records of six people that used the service which provided information on the needs of each person.

We found that people were supported to make choices and decisions about the care that they received. Where people were unable to make decisions for themselves the provider had involved the people that knew them best to make decisions about the care they received.

We found that relatives we spoke with were happy about the care people received. One relative told us it was: "The care is really quite good".

We found that there were sufficient staff recruitment systems in place.
