CQC (formerly CSCI) is the independent regulator of all heath and social care in England. Following recent CQC assessment visits to 32 Creative Support Projects, 15 projects were given a 3* excellent rating, with a further 15
projects reaching the 2* good rating. Not all Creative Support projects and services are assessed by CQC, only projects that provide personal care. Some projects are assessed by Supporting People using the QAF Framework. In
both cases, projects are assessed on meeting and ideally exceeding a number of criteria including the provision of a personalised and innovative service. All projects are also assessed internally. Well done to all those services that had a successful assessment in 2009!
