Council 'acted swiftly' over Autumn Grange care home

Last year, when the owners of Autumn Grange informed us at short notice and in breach of their contract with us that they intended to close the home, we acted swiftly to move all residents to alternative homes.

We have since been conducting a safeguarding investigation into issues at the home, in conjunction with the police and the Care Quality Commission, and will continue to help the police with their investigation. We are unable to comment further while the investigation is ongoing.

– Nottingham City Council’s Director of Adult Social Services Candida Brudenell
