Regulation of services for autistic people and/or people with a learning disability - CPA response
8 October 2020
The Care Quality Commission has updated its guidance on the regulation of services for autistic people and/or people with a learning disability.
Kathy Roberts, chair of the Care Provider Alliance – the national body representing over 10,000 care providers – responded to the announcement saying:
“Good quality care is all about outcomes. It can, and must, enable people to have fulfilling, meaningful lives – not simply to be safe and comfortable. That is why the Care Provider Alliance welcomes CQC’s revised guidance on the regulation of services for autistic people and people with a learning disability and their increased focus on outcomes, human rights and dignity.
“We look forward to continuing to work with CQC on their approach to regulation – and we are particularly pleased to see their commitment to supporting care providers prior to requesting registration.”
