Care Quality Commission

Life Works Community CQC Registration

Life Works Community Ltd is registered, and therefore licensed to provide services, by the Care Quality Commision (Provider ID: 1-101617818 Location ID: 1-140596042).

The Care Quality Commission

The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. They regulate care provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies and voluntary organisations. From 1 October 2010, all health and adult social care providers are legally responsible for making sure they meet essential standards of quality and safety and must be licensed with CQC.

The CQC visit all care providers to assess the level of service being provided to ensure that it meets certain standards. It also advises care service providers on improvements that need to be made. They also continue to monitor providers to make sure they continue to improve and if not they have a wide range of actions that can be taken if they find care services are not meeting these essential standards.

Following an unannounced visit Life Works has been given the highest industry award of 3 star "Excellent" from the Care Quality Commission.

The CQC Inspection report highlighted excellence in a number or areas including individual needs and choices; personal and healthcare support and our unique environment. The Inspector commented that Life Works clients benefit from 'a highly qualified, experienced staff team and a multi-disciplinary, inclusive approach to assessment and treatment planning'.

During the inspection the facilitator met with our clients who commented:

  • "I am blessed to have found this place".
  • "Excellent all round and I would highly recommend to others seeking treatment for addictions."
  • "This is an excellent treatment centre and it is helping me enormously."
  • "Life Works has been fantastic in helping me deal with my drug and alcohol addiction".
  • "Staff are good and professional"
  • "The staff are kind and helpful the counsellors are good and knowledgeable of addiction".

The Care Quality Commission have a page listing of Life Works Community in their registered service directory, where you can find our most recent report along with the archived reports.

Check CQC for Care Providers

Entering recovery is a huge step and requires complete trust in the organisation or company that are taking responsibility for your recovery.  Considering that, it is vital that you check with the CQC that the organisation or company offering a place to enter recovery is in fact a registered and qualified care provider. 

Life Works strive to be as professional, experienced and trustworthy as possible using the guidelines of the CQC.  Unfortunately some will not follow our example, or the CQC guidelines, with some providers not being registered and practicing unlawfully.  Please ensure that where ever you enter recovery, you are receiving the proper care you deserve.

    If you are interested in learning more about Life Works qualifications or you would like to start treatment, please call us at 0800 081 0700 or fill out our contact form.
