We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection checked whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.

This was an unannounced inspection which took place over a day on 15 November 2017. The inspection was ‘focussed’ and was carried out to follow up on previous breaches of regulations.

This inspection was carried out by two adult social care inspectors.

We reviewed other information we held about the service. This included some concerns we had received regarding the financial management of people’s personal allowances. We looked at this on the inspection, as part of the overall governance of the service.

During the inspection we were able to see and interact with five of the people who received care from Access Community Services. We visited the service’s central offices.

We spoke with six staff including care/support staff, the registered manager and deputy manager for the supporting living service.

We looked at the care records for four of the people being supported, including medication records, and other records relevant to the quality monitoring of the service such as safety audits and quality audits.
