The chair of Fife Community Planning Partnership and Chief Officers have received notification of the Care Inspectorates intention to undertake a joint inspection of services for children and young people in need of care and protection in Fife.
Inspectors will be onsite in the weeks beginning Monday 1st October & Monday 12th November 2018.
The Inspection Team will scrutinise the assessment and planning arrangements for vulnerable children and young people with a particular focus on children in need of care and protection.
A full overview and diary of the inspection activity is available in the new Children’s Services Newsletter
Gathering the view of Children, Young People and their Parents & Carers
A key aspect of the inspection process will involve listening to children and young people.
2 surveys have been developed to capture the views of care experienced children and young people in Fife. These surveys will be made available via the Social Work Service. A Parent and Carers survey will also be issued by the Care Inspectorate.
The inspection team also consists of two Young Inspection Volunteer’s (YIVs) who will help to support children and young people to participate in the inspection activity and can provide 1-1 support, if required. These young inspectors have experience of being looked after and will also help to guide the wider inspection team during their time in Fife.
The Care Inspectorate have produced a leaflet to help explain the focus and purpose of the Inspection. You can access a PDF version here
