There is a serious issue to be resolved. There are 7 government or parliamentary reviews that are placing demands on the small residential child care sector. Each demands intense attention by the sector, each is slightly different, and there is overlap.
The NCERCC publication ‘Reviewing the reviews from residential child care’ (March 2021) looks at each review and other demands and provides 7 pieces of advice for 7 reviews
There is a link here to the recent post on the 17 categories of residential child care and education published in full in the Therapeutic Care Journal. Notably this does not include unregulated (by OFSTED) accommodation with support (but not care) that is provided to young people as a semi/independence offering. The status of this category of residential care is one of the contentious issues for the Reviews. (Residential Forum comment)
