Staff at a specialist centre for young people with disabilities are celebrating after being graded as “outstanding” by Ofsted inspectors.
CMG Lilliputs in Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch was praised by the inspectors for how its staff know the young people they care for, and for their willingness to “go the extra mile” in delivering care.
Leanne Howard, Deputy Manager of CMG Lilliputs, said: “Although the job can be difficult at times, it’s really rewarding, and it’s heart-warming to see the positive impact that our work has on the children we care for. Their attitude and achievements are truly inspirational.
“We’re delighted to have been once again recognised as ‘Outstanding’, but determined not to rest on our laurels.”
The centre was also complimented for helping the young people it cares for to lead varied and active lives through the wide range of activities on offer.
