A North Northamptonshire Council team which gives vulnerable young adults the support they need to live independently has been noted for its good work by sector watchdog, the Care Quality Commission.

The Specialist Support Services for Younger Adults with Disabilities North team (SSYA) received a ‘Good’ rating in all areas after a recent inspection which included interviews with service users, family members and staff.

The team is a registered domiciliary care service providing personal care to younger adults to live independently in Northamptonshire. These younger adults (classed as aged between 18 and 65), have a physical or learning disability or mental health problems.

The team joins the council’s Reablement North team which also received a ‘Good’ rating from the CQC after an inspection in July last year.

We are celebrating the fantastic results following our second inspection with the Care Quality Commission.

The team, which is based at Patrick Road Resource Centre, Corby, helps people living in the North Northamptonshire area to remain living independently within their own homes for longer. 

It is no understatement to suggest that the dedicated staff in this team greatly enrich the lives of these young adults and help them to flourish. I’m extremely proud of the good work they do and would like to congratulate them on this achievement.
Cllr Helen Harrison

The CQC inspection ensures care providers are meeting the legal requirements and regulations of providing personal care to clients, assess the quality of the service provided and award an official rating.

Helping our vulnerable adults live active, independent lives is important to us as a Council and delighted that this team is delivering a quality service. I’d like to offer my congratulations for all their hard work and dedication.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council
