Supported Accommodation

No Ofsted inspection?

As much as we would prefer to avoid them altogether it can be hard to wait for an inspection. It’s good to be able to recognise good work, but also to flag areas for development yourself rather than have concerns raised by the regulator.

Built on years of providing independent assessments of residential settings for young people, we can work with you to assess yourselves against the Ofsted criteria. Visiting every other month and sharing a report, tools and action plans in between, our highly experienced consultant team will develop your setting to achieve their best at inspection, but also their best for your young people.

I have been involved with safeguarding both children and adults over many years as a manager, Inspector, Consultant, Director and senior leader. I was very impressed and feel more confident in my future role.
