Our Mission Statement

To be recognised as the ‘Quality Symbol’ for the Care Sector

RDB Star Rating is an independent inspection company, which understands the current challenges facing the care sector and has the skills and expertise to drive forward improvement.

The RDB inspection model is holistic, objective and developmental in its approach and compliments the CQC Regulatory Model.  All our care standards are cross referenced with both the Regulations, CQC KLOEs and Ratings.

RDB is the first company in the UK to be accredited by UKAS, as an inspection body, to the International Standard ISO/IEC 17020:2012 for Adult Social Care.

“RDB Star Rating has been at the forefront of measuring quality in residential care services for many years.  The news that this excellent scheme has been accredited by UKAS, gives the general public and care providers an independently accredited view of quality.  At a time when the quality of care services is constantly being scrutinised, RDB Star Rating is an independently accredited and universally acclaimed mark of quality.”
