New inspection framework for local authorities’
HCL Special Projects is an end-to-end service covering pre-inspection health checks, an overview of systems and recommendations and mentoring in line with budgetary and service restrictions. The service is carried out by specialist project teams.
HCL Social Care Managing Director Stephen Hockey says the service has been developed in direct consultation with senior figures across the sector. We want to directly address the new Ofsted inspection criteria and work with local authorities to reverse the current trend of ‘inadequate’
“The service is modular - local authorities can pick and choose elements of the HCL Special Projects package or select a full service. This allows us to provide a specific, measurable and effective improvement in systems, processes and morale.” He said.
“It’s all about painting a clear, concise and transparent picture so local authorities can act. Key issues range from getting case loads audited and up-to-date, mentoring staff, refreshing quality assurance and compliance procedures and more.”
“As a volume supplier of social care staff, it’s imperative we are doing what we can to make sure we are giving local authorities the support they need, and to the highest level of compliance and safeguarding. Basically, we are looking to encourage positive outcomes for standards of care and cost efficiencies for children’s services.”
