Please note:

  • All of the above providers have met our expected quality standards.
  •  Some providers have met the criteria for our Gold Standard status*, representing excellent value for money based on their quality and cost.
  • The Reading Borough Council (RBC) rate displayed on the list is the agreed pro-rata hourly rate that RBC pays when directly purchasing services from the provider or when direct payments are being used. Providers may charge different rates to those purchasing their own care with their own funds which is not arranged by RBC. 
  • If quality concerns are identified for a provider on the SLF, Reading Borough Council may give a provider a Red (no new placements to be made) or Amber (placements to be made with caution) placement flag. If a provider is issued with a Red placement flag they will be removed from the SLF list until the flag is lifted. Providers with an Amber flag will remain on the SLF list but it will be clear that they are amber flagged. If you would like further information about any placement flags, please contact the Quality and Performance Monitoring Team at

*Gold Standard status

Providers who have achieved our Gold Standard status have met quality criteria over and above our expected standard. We monitor providers’ quality on an ongoing basis and each provider has a formal quality assessment every year which is based on a range of information, including feedback from service users, family members and health and social care professionals as well as information viewed at quality monitoring visits and from our ongoing monitoring data.

**Dignity in Care

The Council’s Dignity Charter is a set of commitments that providers make to ensure that dignity is at the heart of the service that they provide.
