Our Policies

We have compiled a set of policies utilised in our homes to ensure that we comply with all regulations and guidelines as laid out by both the Care Standards Act 2000 and Children’s Homes Regulations and Quality Standards 2015, as well as other associated legislation. A full guide to our policies can be found here.

Standard Operating Procedure

We have our own standard operating procedure for making referrals for placement. These involve conducting a thorough risk assessment to determine the specific needs of the child or young person in question. We then take that assessment and consider whether we have the facilities and resources in place to provide them with the level of care that they need. These standard operating procedures ensure that all children and young people referred to us for placement are treated exactly the same as one another. Full details of our SOP are available upon request.

Inspection Reports

Our fully-registered care homes are all regularly-inspected by our regulatory body, Ofsted. We are proud of our performance and of the measures we take to continually improve. Our Ofsted URN can be found here:
