Point in time questionnaires for social care services

Ofsted launches point in time questionnaires for social care services.

Children playing with adults

What do you think of your children’s home, fostering service, adoption agency, adoption support agency or residential family centre?

Ofsted’s social care online questionnaires for children’s homes, fostering services, adoption agencies, adoption support agencies and residential family centres are now open. You can give us your views until 3 April 2016.

We want to get as many views as possible from children and young people, adults who use services, staff, parents, carers and professionals, about the effectiveness and quality of these services.

This important feedback helps us prepare for inspections and informs our decisions about when to inspect.

You will get a link to the questionnaire from your children’s home, fostering service, adoption agency, adoption support agency or residential family centre. If you do not get this link, please contact your provider and ask if they can send you this.

If you do not feel able to ask the service for a questionnaire, you can contact Ofsted on 0300 123 1231 or enquiries@ofsted.gov.uk and we’ll make sure you have a chance to give us your views.
