Inspectors use a survey to gather the views of all staff who work directly with children and young people in need of care and protection, about the difference that services are making to their lives and how they are being helped to achieve positive outcomes. In addition to the staff survey, we will invite children and young people, as well as parents and carers, to complete surveys to gather their views about their experiences of services.

CPPs are asked to distribute the staff survey directly to their staff and the Care Inspectorate will provide a link to this at the briefing for partners about the inspection process.  The survey takes around 15 - 20 minutes to complete and is aimed at those people who work with vulnerable children and young people and families, including health visitors, school nurses, doctors, teachers, social workers, police officers, and staff working in the voluntary and independent sector.

Staff do not have to provide their name, just their current occupation/professional role and job type.  Four weeks are allocated for its completion and the analysis of the results are subsequently shared with the CPP.
