The Children’s Trust rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission

The Children’s Trust, based in Tadworth, Surrey, is delighted to have been awarded the highest possible rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Following an unannounced visit in November 2017, the charity, which provides specialist rehabilitation, education and care to children with brain injury and neurodisability, has been rated as ‘Outstanding’ in all five areas by CQC. The report was published on Friday 12 January and reads: “Staff treated people with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect. People and relatives felt that staff went above and beyond in how they provided care.” Families of children and young people at The Children’s Trust also shared their experiences with CQC with one relative quoted in the report: “When my son came here he was in a wheelchair. He is now walking. It’s helped tremendously having the right treatment. Their dedication, innovation and professionalism is outstanding.” Another stated: “she has made a fantastic recovery and is now back at school. Without their support we might not be where we are now as a family.” Maggie Clancy, Director of Clinical Services at The Children’s Trust, said: “We are dedicated to offering high quality, personalised care to children and young people, and we are thrilled to have this recognised by CQC. It is testament to the team’s passion and hard work. Everyone at The Children’s Trust works tirelessly to ensure that the children and young people we support are given the best care, so that they have the opportunity to live the best life possible.” Dalton Leong, Chief Executive at The Children’s Trust, said: “We are delighted to have achieved ‘Outstanding’ in all five areas. Maggie and her team do an amazing job supporting every child and young person at The Children’s Trust. The children and their families’ needs will always be at the heart of our service delivery.” Read the full report on the CQC website here.
