Quality and Standards

Care Quality Commission

Carers Trust Cambridgeshire is registered with Care Quality Commission (CQC, which replaced CSCI, the Commission for Social Care Inspection).

We are the leading local fully Care Quality Commission (CQC) compliant organisation providing care, respite and breaks specifically for family carers too.

See the Inspector’s report following their latest Inspection.

In Cambridgeshire and Peterborough the CQC rating below applies.

Centre of Excellence


Carers Trust nationally has awarded our organisation their Centre of Excellence quality award.

To achieve it we needed to demonstrate high quality across all aspects of our organisation, from its governance to the way that we engage with families and the support we deliver to them.

The award will help to position our organisation in the best possible way in a highly competitive sector and help us to develop and succeed in our aims. It should also give carers even greater confidence in the quality of service they can expect from us.

Investors in People

Investors in People is a national standard given to organisations that have a high standard of training and development for their Staff. Carers Trust Cambridgeshire retained the Investor in People standard in 2014.

Annual Survey

Each year we also send a Quality of Service Questionnaire to our clients. This is an opportunity for Carers and people with care needs to tell us what they think of the service we provide and how we can improve the service for the future to ensure we maintain our high standards.
