Do Shared Hours have to be delivered by CQC registered staff?

It depends upon the needs of the people.  If nobody within the house needs personal care or prompting for personal care then the SHO can be delivered by non CQC regulated companies.  If somebody does need personal care the provider (if unregulated) has to prove that they are able to meet the requirements using sub contracted companies who are regulated.  However it would of course be simpler for all concerned, where somebody within the house needs CQC regulated care that the SHO company is regulated.
