Our registrations with CQC

All of our services are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). From 2014 to 2017 our service sat within a subsidiary of RNIB, named RNIB Charity. RNIB is in the process of restructuring to create a leaner, more efficient governance structure to equip us to deliver excellent services for blind and partially sighted people in years to come. As part of this process, in September 2017 we re-registered our activities which are regulated by the CQC from RNIB Charity to RNIB. We are in the process of re-registering our activities with Ofsted and the Care Inspectorate in Scotland. Once these processes are complete the legal transfer of all people, activities, assets and liabilities from RNIB Charity to RNIB will take place.
