Regulation 44 Visits
We have been providing Regulation 44 visitors for over 10 years and currently have a team of professionals delivering this service across the UK.
The management team at the Signis Group have had extensive experience of working in residential children’s homes, have been registered managers and registered individuals and therefore are very familiar with the regulations, the inspection process and how to deliver services which work to improve the life chances and outcomes for children in care.
Lead Authors will review cases where there is a need for learning or in the context of a serious case review. The author will use an approach which is rooted in a systems methodology with the review being considered upon its own individual circumstances and the system focusing on the requirements of the case. Our authors will ensure that all key stakeholders involved within the review will be approached with respect and dignity and without fear of being blamed. Learning from the review is key to improving practice and our authors remain focused on identifying key themes and addressing the opportunity for change.
Our service review team will provide consultation on how identified areas for improvement can be addressed and how change can be implemented. We can provide implementation boards and plans to underpin a systematic process of change and deliver services to improve leadership and practice and achieve better outcomes for vulnerable children and adults
Reviews of Procedures
We have a team of expert lead consultants who can work with children and adults services, safeguarding boards, residential and fostering agencies to assess compliance with legislative policies and provide both procedures and practice guidance. As a customer you will receive alerts to new legislation and newsletters which include relevant practice guidance.
We can provide independent investigators to review allegations, complaints or concerns. Our team of investigators are highly experienced and from a range of settings including children’s and adult services, residential care, fostering and HR services.
Safer Schools audits
Our safer school audits are provided to schools across the UK and can be delivered to meet the specific needs of the individual school. The overall objective of this service is to consider the effectiveness of the safeguarding practices within the school.
Our team of experts in this field will provide highly regulated services with support and action to improve and sustain leadership and practice and achieve better outcomes for children and young people. Our ability to provide improvement boards and implement improvement plans has resulted in safer practice and reduced risks to children. The level of support that we can offer does achieve better grades in inspections and improves the governance of the organisation, allowing the leaders to learn from the process and continue this practice when we have completed our work.
Missing from care interviews
Our Children’s Service can provide experienced workers to undertake interviews with children who have been missing from care. The level of independence will provide an opportunity to look at each episode individually and within the context of the history of the individual child. Any patterns emerging and any concerns regarding CSE, risk of grooming, inappropriate peer relationships, bullying or any other concerns will be reported immediately after the interview.
