Updated quality framework for children and young people in need of care and protection

In July 2018, we launched our quality framework for children and young people in need of care and protection.  Designed to lead to improvement in services, the framework is for community planning partnerships to support self-evaluation of services for children and young people in need of care and protection.  We have now reviewed and updated the framework, and in particular made some minor changes to the six point scale definitions so that they align fully with the Care Inspectorate quality framework.

To co-incide with the publication of the updated quality framework, we are also launching The Guide, which is an inter-active resource to support community planning partnerships through a joint inspection of their services for children and young people in need of care and protection. Containing, a week-by-week guide to the process, useful information about key aspects and a set of supporting documents, The Guide is aimed at those staff who will be involved in the inspection.
