A spokesperson for the company said: “Ensuring participation and inclusion promotes wellbeing for all, resulting in an environment which is truly happy and a team that want to be there. Everyone is there to support one another as one big family.

“As an organisation we put a great amount of importance on lived experience and what people want to engage in. Identifying activity that is meaningful is essential to reduce any feelings of isolation or loneliness with individuals engaged in the home in everyday activities such as washing up, peeling vegetables and feeding animals.”

The home was awarded the Outstanding rating for all categories bar the safety inspection area where it scored a Good rating.
