In response to revised Children’s Homes Regulations including the Quality Standards (April 2015) we have produced a procedures manual specifically for those independent organisations providing residential children’s homes for vulnerable children. 

The manual has been structured to reflect the order of the Department for Education guide insofar that all of the procedures work through its requirements with a pragmatic approach, enabling those staff working within a residential environment ready access to the information required to do their job effectively, and also recognise where each element fits with government thinking.

Recognising the resource constraints in residential settings, this manual has been designed to minimise local input and benefit from centralised amendment inclusions, reflecting legislative and regulatory change, in a timely fashion. Additionally, a facility exists within the manual for customers to upload local policies and guidance via a content management system affording greater flexibility to include specific local information. 

As the supplier of online procedures to the majority of local authorities across the country, providers of care in independent residential settings are assured that in engaging with us for the procurement of a procedures manual they will receive a trusted and reliable; well informed and innovative service offering an affordable solution.
