Under the Quality Standards and Regulations for supported accommodation providers, the Registered Person and Registered Service Manager hold key responsibilities for safeguarding young people living in their setting.
The National Children’s Bureau, as the Department for Education’s appointed provider of the Sector Awareness and Provider Preparedness Programme for supported accommodation, are running workshops for Registered Persons and Registered Service Managers to help them understand how their responsibilities for safeguarding are applied in practice within their own organisations. Attendees will consider how to evidence that their safeguarding practice meets the Quality Standards, and reflect on how they should work with local authorities and other statutory agencies to ensure an effective working partnership to safeguard young people.
This workshop will look at the challenges, questions raised and ways forward to provide an opportunity for learning and sharing of practice.
The objectives for the workshops are:
- To remind Registered Persons and Registered Service Managers of their key role and responsibilities in safeguarding as set out in the Regulations and Quality standards.
- Registered Persons and Registered Service Managers to have the opportunity to reflect on their approach, skills and experience to explore further the implications of the Standards to their own role and work and to consider any changes they may need to make to current working practices.
- To discuss, learn, confirm what Registered Persons and Registered Service Managers do in practice, within their organisations, and enabling others to safeguard the young people within their provision
- Providers to have increased confidence in safeguarding and have identified action learning points from the workshop to develop further in practice.
- Providers have increased understanding of how safeguarding is applied in practice.
