As a Fostering and Residential service, we are regulated and inspected by Ofsted (the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills). This is a non-ministerial government department. Its job is to inspect and regulate all services that care for children and young people.
Ofsted ratings indicate the quality of an institution and the inspections are intended not only to check that the legal requirements are being met, but are also designed to raise the standards and drive improvement in terms of the outcomes for children and young people.
We are pleased to report that in our most recent inspections both services received good ratings once again.
Our most recent inspection of the Fostering Services was in August 2019. The inspection report highlights our commitment and dedication to providing quality foster care to all children and young people, and quality support to all our foster carers. Here are a few extracts from the report:
