An inspection of the Hjaltland Housing Association’s housing support services has been unable to offer any suggestions for improvement. This is unusual. They can typically find something missing in documentation.
The inspectors looked at both the sheltered housing support services and the transitional arrangements for young people leaving care and found both to be ‘Excellent.’
An inspection of the Association’s sheltered housing support services along with The Hub Project – an initiative jointly ran with Shetland Islands Council to provide transitional housing and support for young people leaving care was carried out on September 19 with the services given an ‘excellent’ rating. The audit looked at the quality of care and support and the quality of management and leadership.
Reported in Scottish Housing News, the head of the service said:
‘I’m pleased to hear that service users were highly complementary of the quality of care and support offered. Their feedback, along with the ‘excellent’ rating given by the Care Inspectorate is testament to the commitment and dedication shown by our staff members who work hard to achieve good outcomes for service users.’
