The Care Inspectorate has launched 'How well are we improving the lives of children and young people?  A guide to evaluating services using quality indicators'. 

 This framework of quality indicators is designed to support Community Planning Partnerships in their self-evaluation of performance across the full range of services for children, young people and families.  

Ministers have requested that the Care Inspectorate lead the development of a coordinated approach to the scrutiny and improvement of services for children and young people and the indicators will also be used by inspectors when they carry out independent scrutiny.  

We are keen to find out your views about how useful this guide is, how it might be improved and how we can support and build capacity for joint-self-evaluation across partnerships.
