Apr 2023 - Guide To Supported Accommodation Regulations

News ID: 687

On 23/3/2023 the Department For Education published the Guide to the Supported Accommodation Regulations including Quality Standards.
 
The Government consultation response set down the next steps as follow: "Ofsted will begin registering providers from 28 April 2023. The Regulations and guidance must be complied with for the purposes of registration and as soon as providers and managers are registered with Ofsted. If a complete application for registration with Ofsted has not been made before 28 October 2023, it will be an offence to carry on or manage a supported accommodation service on or after that date".
 
And in the recently published Guide "Regulation 24 details the records that must be kept in supported accommodation. All young people’s case records must be kept up to date and stored securely whilst they remain in the setting. Case records must be kept up-to-date and signed and dated by the author of each entry. Young people’s case records must be kept for 75 years from the date of birth of the child, or if the child dies before the age of 18, for 15 years from the date of his or her death".
 
CHARMS offers a complete, online solution for all supported accommodation and semi-independence providers to keep their records secure, as prescribed by Regulation 24. If you would like to find out more please call 0161 237 1872 or email info@socialcarenetwork.com.
