Andrew Greenhalgh made this Freedom of Information request to Northumberland County Council

From: Andrew Greenhalgh

Dear Northumberland County Council,

As you are aware Supported Living providers are not currently
required to register with the Care Quality commission. Therefore
this information of suppliers is only available from Local
Authorities. Please can you therefore supply a full list of all
your supported living providers with full contact details including
phone numbers and email addresses.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Greenhalgh

You asked the following question:

As you are aware Supported Living providers are not currently required
to register with the Care Quality commission. Therefore this information
of suppliers is only available from Local Authorities. Please can you
therefore supply a full list of all your supported living providers with
full contact details including phone numbers and email addresses.

This question appears to be based on incorrect information.  Supported
Living is a specific category of service identified by the Care Quality
Commission (CQC) in their application form for registration of a personal
care service (see the "new provider application form for organisations"
available [1]here on their website).  This information is therefore
available from CQC, and is published on their website.  If the format in
which it is presented there is not suitable for your purposes, I would
suggest you address an enquiry to them.
Please let me know if we can be of any further help.

As indicated in my earlier response, registration of supported living providers is a matter for CQC, and requests for lists of registered providers would best be made to them. We do not have an obligation under FOI legislation to provide information which is already published, and I am afraid we do not have the capacity to respond to ad hoc requests of this kind beyond our statutory duties by assembling information published by other organisations.

I am happy to discuss this matter on the phone if you feel that we have not understood your query correctly.
