The combination of residents, family, friends, staff, and the wider community create the care home community. Bringing volunteers into the care home, and taking residents out to events in the community around them, would be approved by the CQC, and can also help make the care home more visible to the wider community.

The My Home Life FaNs (Friends and Neighbours) programme helps support care homes in engaging more with their local community.
