Do you have an inspection coming up but you’re worried about the outcome? Our team of auditors can do a practice audit for you prior to the actual inspection. Inspections of children’s homes are the most monitored in the most regulated sector in the UK. Their inspections, visits, reports and monitoring are frequent and rigorous. An inspection could lead to further monitoring if they find anything untoward, but you can prevent this!
The inspections are conducted by Ofsted, the Care Inspectorate Scotland, the Care and Social Services Inspectorate (Wales), or the Care and Training Inspectorate (Northern Ireland).
A full visit will occur at least once a year, followed by an interim visit. Monitoring visits could occur to any home as part of fact-ﬁnding and evidence-building exercises. In addition to this, thematic inspections can occur, however they usually look to highlight areas of good practice.
