Our OFSTED Inspections


One of our care homes has been judged by OFSTED as ‘Outstanding in all areas’. The home was judged over six consecutive inspections and represents an outstanding achievement, being one of only 15 care homes in the entire country to have achieved the highest standard that OFSTED award.

We anticipate that all of our homes will also be recognised.  All our homes use the same paperwork systems and operate using best practice principles. We operate to exceed the national minimum standards.

We provide care based on the ‘Every Child Matters’ framework using attachment theory and use therapeutic parenting styles.
