Supported living units

Hi Sheila

I am interested in registering a supported living unit in Huntingdon in the Cambridgeshire region , l have been in contact with CQC and they have informed me that they do not register supported living units.

My question were do l go for registration any advice will greatly appreciated at this point.

Supported living units are not subject to specialist registration. They are viewed as housing and are therefore subject to planning law and building control regulation.

Any personal care that is provided in the supported living though is subject to registration http://www.cqc.org.uk/content/services-your-home

A useful source of information is http://www.housingcare.org/guides/item-extra-care-housing.aspx

I hope this is helpful.

Best wishes,
Sheila
