Policies

The Unit's aim is to ensure, through effective inspection and regulation (where services are regulated), that acceptable outcomes for children, young people and vulnerable adults are achieved and improved by the receipt of safe care services. Improved outcomes can only be achieved if children, young people and vulnerable adults are safe from harm.

Therefore, promoting the welfare of these groups who use regulated and inspected services is part of the Unit's core business.

The Unit will ensure that it fulfils its responsibilities to work jointly with others to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and where necessary, to help bring to justice the perpetrators of any crimes.
