When we asked managers how they benefited from attending networks, they said they:
- felt more confident and prepared for inspection
- could share ideas and good practice with other managers
- were more positive about their current position
- felt less isolated as a result of attending a network.

At the Hartlepool network our aim is ensure that all organisations are up-to-date with current training needs and that staff come on board with the values and beliefs that we have. We are all aiming for the same outcome and that is to ensure people are safe and supported by promoting independence and having the best quality of life - achieving dreams and aspirations.
Registered Service Manager, Real Life Options
Our networks cover every local authority area in England and we’re always keen to help create new ones.
The managers that attended were very supportive of the network and found it very useful to have the opportunity to talk to a representative from the CQC, who was very pleased to see networks like ours being set up and to support these.
