News about the great work of Aztec House

9th January 2023

The work undertaken by The Shelter Trust in providing a supportive and safe environment for short term occupancy has a significant impact on the ability of people to move forwards from ‘homelessness’ to independent living.
A recent Jersey Care Commission report speaks volumes about the commitment of the management and staff, and the quality of the service delivered to 50 or so people on a regular basis at Aztec House.
Inspection Findings
‘The last inspection in February 2021 noted a long established, well organised service with a very high standard of governance in place as overseen by a senior management team.’
‘The process for registering a new Registered Manager was concluded during the (2022) inspection process, with the experienced Assistant Manager promoted to the position.’
‘Good succession planning was evident...’
‘There is a well-informed trained staff team in place...’
‘The use of a tool (Outcomes Star) which is person-centred and encourages work towards independent living is an area of good practice with well-informed support workers demonstrating how this is promoted.’
‘There were no areas for improvement identified at this inspection.‘
This is a fantastic, reassuring report that reflects well on the management and staff of The Shelter Trust. However, you can be assured that we are committed to an ongoing process of reviewing and improving the service that they offer to all service users.
