Outstanding Residential Care for Children & Young People with Disabilities

Children with disabilities deserve the same rights and opportunities as anyone else. 

It shouldn’t need to be said, but this is the central drive of the national CSPR into the experience of disabled children in residential settings Safeguarding children with disabilities in residential settings – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).  Residential care of young people is not easy, and where young people have disabilities it requires more effort, higher standards, and a core value base.

Our Outstanding Residential Care course examines the underpinning framework for outstanding care and draws on our trainers’ decades of experience in creating the ambition, culture, training, and monitoring environment required to enable our young people to achieve great things.

It’s an amazing accomplishment to receive a “Good” judgement from Ofsted, but have you ever thought what it would take to receive the coveted “Outstanding” judgement? There are only so many hours in the day!
