  • A residential home for people with intellectual disabilities has had its registration cancelled after residents were found to be living in unsafe and unsanitary conditions.
  • A further announced inspection, carried out in May, found that while there had been improvements to some of the more concerning aspects of the living environment, the provider had failed to implement most of its planned actions to improve the care and support provided to residents.
  • The managers were sent a warning letter last September, an improvement letter seeking changes in November and then a notice of the proposal to cancel the registration in March followed by a final inspection in May.
