Regulation 44 Inspections:
A significant speciality of ours; we have vast experience of providing monthly Independent Regulation 44 Inspections for residential children’s homes and pride ourselves on providing not just a compulsory service, but a truthful, useful and pro active inspection.
Our regulation 44 Inspections are completely independent; we do not ever work in ‘quality assurance’ roles and are never directly employed through any organisation to ensure our independence.
As required in The Children’s Homes Regulations 2015 we assess the quality of care provided and your safeguarding arrangements but also assess the home holistically; this ensures a quality and useful service for providers.
We always try to discuss the children’s home with external stakeholders, the staff and children themselves (where appropriate) for example.
Our experience within the industry allows us to understand the role of a Responsible Individual, Registered Manager and every level of staffing (we have been there).
Our experience of other Residential Children’s Homes allows us to identify good practice and then importantly, share this with you and provide realistic advice and strategies for improvement.
Our experience of working with Ofsted and analysing their inspections of our past and present clients allows us to identify trends and share these with you.
Feedback for Regulation 44 Inspections has always been excellent (and is available on request) and references are available from both present clients.
We are proud that none of our current clients have ever ceased using our services; this in itself evidences the quality and usefulness of our inspections. Furthermore, all current clients have improved significantly both from a management and Ofsted’s perspective since our involvement with the home’s.
