A refreshed suite of best practices for Supported Living providers now available in QCS

Quality Compliance Systems (QCS), the leading provider of content, guidance and standards for the social care sector, has updated its suite of best-practice tools and resources to help Supported Living providers deliver transformative, person-centred support.

Its refreshed tailored policies recognise the diverse range of service users that providers support, and the challenges those working in the sector face. Delivering clear direction and guidance, they promote best-practices and positive outcomes.

Damaris Daniels, Content Director at QCS, said, "When services are steeped in regulation and best practice, the sector can be empowering and change lives for the better, enabling individuals to live the life they choose - rather than the life that has been chosen for them.”

Content in existing key policies has been boosted with the addition of topics such as Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) and communication. QCS has also streamlined the suite, used more inclusive language and updated titles to ensure the content is appropriate for Supported Living providers.

The umbrella of supported living services provides hundreds of thousands of people, in the government’s words, with “a safe, stable and supportive place to live”. Barry Price, QCS Specialist Contributor, said that ensuring this is the case is easier said than done. “It requires teams to embrace a person-centred culture of best practice learning, which ultimately reflects in organisational policies and procedures such as support plans.”

When providers sign up to the QCS service, they gain access to a library of expert resources on topics such as enhancing wellbeing, promotion of independence and tenancy agreements.
