In our role as registered social landlord and care provider, Anchor is regulated by three organisations, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and The Charity Commission.

The Care Quality Commission

The CQC took over from the Commission for Social Care Inspection in April 2009 and is responsible for making sure care homes and care services in England provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care.

You can easily view CQC inspection reports for each Anchor care home by clicking the ‘Read the CQC report’ link in the ‘What our regulator says’ section of each care home information page on this website.

The Homes and Communities Agency

The HCA took responsibility for the regulation of social housing providers in England on 1 April 2012. Its role is to ensure social housing providers are well governed, financially viable and deliver services to tenants of a certain standard and quality.

Anchor work closely with our regulators to ensure the highest standards of care and housing are provided at all of our locations.

The Charity Commission

The Charity Commission is the registrar and regulator of charities in England and Wales. Its role is to ensure charities are held to account and it has legal powers to act where there is or may be mismanagement in charities.
