All services are inspected regularly by the Care Inspectorate and inspection reports are displayed on notice boards within the building and can be viewed on line at the Care Inspectorate website.
All our funding bodies also require us to complete regular monitoring and evaluation of our services. We also get regular feed back from families and services users. This feed back helps us develop and improve our services. Great emphasis is placed on in put from all the young people with support given to non verbal service users. Participation is vital to our success.
We are members of a range of organisations which help ensure quality assurance. These include Scottish Out Of School Care Network and the Local Child Care Forum.
We have introduced some new Autism Specific training which we hope will enhance our services.
