St David’s House provides specialist residential care for up to 21 young adults with visual impairment and complex needs within the 14 acre campus of the WESC Foundation. CQC held an unannounced inspection at the end of 2019 and found evidence of outstanding practice across the service. Inspections assess whether a service is safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led. St David’s House was rated “Outstanding” in four of these five areas, and “Outstanding” overall.

CQC, together with relatives and other professionals praised St David’s House staff for providing “exceptionally safe care”, and recognised the commitment, compassion and kindness of staff who support young people with a wide range of complex needs and disabilities.

The report also commends the leadership of the service as being “exceptional and distinctive” and that “leaders and the service culture they created drove and improved high-quality, person-centred care”.

Marc Phillips, Director of Care and Support Services for WESC Foundation, said:

“I am delighted that St David’s House has received such high praise from the CQC which reflects the hard work and commitment from everyone working in the service.

“We have a dedicated team of staff who all go above and beyond every single day to change the lives of the young people that they support, and to achieve “Oustanding” and read such a positive report is a credit to all of them.”
