Regulation44 impact analysis


Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Regulation 44 impact analysis. We have now completed the analysis of the data and found Independent Persons have a significant impact on safeguarding, welfare, staff, managers, commissioners and inspection.

However, there was much variability in both the quality and expectations of Independent Persons’ work and we’re planning to develop national Practice Guidance to support the role. We have shared the detailed findings with the Department for Education (who were also members of the Independent Advisory Board for the research) ahead of their response to the Independent Care Review.

We presented the findings of the Reg44 Impact Analysis during a free webinar on 16th January 2023.
