In our role as registered social landlord and care provider, Anchor is regulated by three organisations, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the Regulator of Social Housing (RSH), 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 Regulator of Social Housing
Until legislation establishes the RSH as a standalone body it is operating as a distinct corporate entity within the Homes and Communities Agency. The RSH works to ensure social housing providers are well governed, financially viable and deliver services to tenants of a certain standard and quality.
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.
Anchor work closely with our regulators to ensure the highest standards of care and housing are provided at all of our locations.
