Regulation 44 Visits

The Children’s Homes (England) Regulations (2015) stipulate that a registered provider must appoint, at the registered provider’s expense, a person (“the independent person”) to visit and report on the children’s home carried on by the registered provider.

The registered person must ensure that an independent person visits the children’s home at least once each month. The independent person must in turn, produce a report about their visit (“the independent person’s report”) which sets out, in particular, the independent person’s opinion as to whether –

a) Children are effectively safeguarded; and
b) The conduct of the home promotes children’s well-being.
