CQC Inspection

The CQC Inspection visit for our Independent Living Service (ILS) took place on Wednesday 21 June 2017. We’re really pleased that the CQC has rated the ILS as good across all five areas they inspect.

Thank you to everyone who made the time to take part in the CQC inspection, and made a contribution to our Good result.

Greenwich Mencap will lend our voice to raise issues and concerns affecting the lives of people with a learning disability. Whether that be education, employment, social lives or care – Greenwich Mencap will always campaign for the best possible services.

As an affiliate to national Mencap, and with a membership in the hundreds across the borough and beyond, we are a strong organisation and we know the impact we can have when we all speak with one voice.

We will always alert our members to those times when they can let their own opinions be heard. All too often the views of people with a learning disability go unnoticed. Communication is often a barrier, while carers are frequently too busy caring to fully assert themselves. In these cases, Greenwich Mencap is here to support.

If there is an issue you believe in, and you think we should know about it, or do more to help bring about changes, we’d love to hear from you.
