Getting Started - Residential and Domiciliary Care

Helping you to achieve CQC Registration

Setting up a new business can be overwhelming. There are many things to consider and pitfalls to avoid. Launching a care business has the added burden of ensuring that you are successfully registered with regulators, such as the (CQC) Care Quality Commission. Turning your dream into reality requires many things; you need to know where to begin, an organised approach and a thorough understanding of the marketplace in which you will be operating.

To get started it is essential to have the right policies and procedures in place to ensure that you successfully register with the regulator and are able to pass future inspections. This applies just as much as to registration with the Care Inspectorate in Scotland and Care Inspectorate Wales, as it does with the CQC in England.

QCS is here to help you with this essential element of launching your care business.


First things first, before you offer any care services, you need to register with the relevant regulator – Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England, Care Inspectorate in Scotland and Care Inspectorate Wales. It is a legal requirement under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 to register your organisation and the individual who will be your Registered Manager. This may be you if you have the relevant qualifications and are not employing or entering into partnership with someone who is to fulfil those requirements.

QCS provides advice and guidance about successfully registering with regulators, as well as providing the essential policies and procedures that are required.
