We are very pleased and relieved to hear that we will be continuing at The Nelson Hall. Many thanks to Schoosh, CEC, Alison Dickie (Councillor) and the Management Council. There is a small increase in rent as the tenure is changing from CEC to Schoosh and costs need to be met.
We are happy to share that we had an unannounced Care Inspection on Tuesday 30th May and Thursday 1st June and have been given a positive report with grade 5 (very good) for the qualities themes “Care and Support” and “Management and Leadership”.
