New man­ager for care team

Rossendale Free Press - - News -

A CARE or­gan­i­sa­tion has an­nounced the ap­point­ment of a new act­ing man­ager.

Ray Old­ham has re­cently joined the Val­ley Sup­ported Liv­ing (VSL) team in Water­foot.

VSL said that with more than 27 years in nurs­ing, men­tal health care and sup­port­ive liv­ing, Ray brings “a wealth of knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence”.

Last month Val­ley Sup­ported Liv­ing bosses pledged to take ‘swift and ef­fec­tive’ ac­tion af­ter it was rated ‘in­ad­e­quate’ by the Care Qual­ity Com­mis­sion (CQC), with eight reg­u­la­tion breaches.

Ray said: “I am de­lighted to have joined VSL. My pri­or­i­ties are to re-fo­cus the ex­cel­lent work that the staff teams al­ready do pro­vid­ing in­di­vid­ual care to our vul­ner­a­ble clients.

“I am tasked with fur­ther de­vel­op­ing our long- stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with the CQC and Lan­cashire County Coun­cil.

“I am greatly look­ing for­ward to be­ing a part of this won­der­ful or­gan­i­sa­tion’s fu­ture devel­op­ment.”

Of­fer­ing sup­ported liv­ing ser­vices to adults with dis­abil­i­ties in their own homes, VSL was set up in 2004 by a group of like-minded par­ents, each with a child with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties.
