Trinity House in Lockerbie is celebrating after receiving ‘Very Good’ ratings across all four quality themes in its latest inspection by the Care Inspectorate; care and support, environment, staffing, and the management and leadership.
Comments in the report from the inspectors and those who use the services at Trinity House included: “The staff have time to take me to the activities that I like and on holidays”, “Staff members and the support I get makes me feel safe staying here”, and “I am encouraged and helped to be independent”.
It was also reported that “During the visit we observed lots of good practice, positive relationships and knowledge of approaches to different people at different times was clearly evidenced”, and “Managers are approachable and lead by example and facilitate a team approach within the service.”
Louise Dunlop, our Director of Operations for Scotland, said: “I am delighted that Trinity House has received such an excellent report from The Care Inspectorate. I know they have worked incredibly hard to achieve this result, and they deserve the recognition that comes with it. I know the team will not allow themselves to be complacent, and will strive to do even better in their next inspection.
“Trinity House is an award-winning home and the team ensure the care of the people they support is their highest priority. I am certain that the fantastic work will continue to be recognised in the future.”
Mel Ramsey, our Chief Executive Officer, said: “This report and the recent 'Innovative Practice Through Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)' award win at the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD) PBS awards both recognise the team at Trinity House's excellent practice in supporting people with learning disabilities.
“I am so proud of Trinity House and the dedicated staff who make it such an exceptional place for the people they support.”
