Care Standards

Sid waves at you happily1. BEGINNING YOUR STAY (STANDARDS 1-7)

There’s a lot to take in when you first arrive in care but the carers’ job is to help you settle as quickly as possible. It’s natural to have loads of questions which your carers should be happy to help you with.

Standards 1 to 7 are all about beginning your stay and dealing with the important stuff like making sure you get to know everyone around you, knowing how to keep in touch with your friends and family, feeling safe and secure in your new home and understanding how the staff in the home work together to look after you.

These standards are about you as a person, how you live your life and how you’ll be encouraged to take some responsibility for things such as keeping healthy, doing well at school and making good choices. Learn More!

For most young people, their time in care comes to end around the time they’re 18. Moving on to an independent life is challenging time. Standard 17 is all about how you’ll be supported throughout this period. Learn More!
