This draft document has been developed to help Care Quality Commission’s inspectors assess whether community and shared lives services meet fundamental standards of quality and safety. It contains prompts for key lines of enquiries and identifies possible sources of evidence in relation to key indicators, which include safety, effectiveness, caring, responsiveness and good leadership. The prompts and the sources of evidence are not an exhaustive list but are there to support what inspectors may want to cover during the inspection process for an individual service.
