Detail of outcome
This is the report on a consultation that sought views on new proposed arrangements for the frequency and content of social care inspection official statistics. We proposed to combine the four publications listed above into a single report, reduce the frequency of publication of the children’s homes statistics, and to introduce management information in the interim periods. In addition, we proposed to simplify the releases.
We are seeking the widest possible range of views to ensure that the revised publication format takes into account the needs and circumstances of all those who have an interest or expertise in social care. We are particularly keen to hear from people who have been directly involved with social care provision – including children, parents and carers and those who run and commission services.
The closing date for the consultation is 8 December 2014.
