Bi-monthly information on developments in the children’s homes sector


The ‘early plans’ of the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care ’s identified ‘love’ as ‘perhaps the most important foundation’ of a good childhood (IRCSC, March 2021). The Scottish Independent Care Review, 2020, made a primary goal to ‘put love at the heart of the care system’.

However, there are many understandable barriers to allowing and enabling our workforce to form mutually loving relationships with the children they care for.

This workshop is designed to support sector leaders to explore the benefits of, the barriers and the means to, create environments in their homes where love between staff and children can safely flourish.  We want to support you to feel confident in giving your staff permission to love and be loved by the children they care for.

This training will take place on Zoom on June 10th 2021, 10.00 – 13.00    

Cost:  £50 + VAT

Ofsted Inspection Framework

The residential child care sector supports some of our most vulnerable children and young people. Therefore, inspection must shine a spotlight on what works well and drive improvement in homes where children’s welfare is not safeguarded and promoted.
