Registration and inspection teams

Our teams of inspectors are skilled and experienced professionals, who have previously worked in the sectors we regulate. They include occupational therapists, social workers, nurses, teachers and daycare specialists.

Registration and enforcement teams

Specialist registration and enforcement teams are in place to make sure that only services that meet all of the regulatory requirements and understand their responsibility to provide safe and good quality care are registered. The teams also take action if services don’t provide safe care.

Area managers

Local authority based teams, led by an area manager, have been put in place to integrate the inspection of registered services and local authority social service. Area managers are responsible for engagement with local authorities in their areas.

Senior inspectors

Senior inspectors provide expertise in particular areas of social care. Our inspectors work across all regulatory functions, adult and children services. They work either as a member of the registration and enforcement team or an area based inspection team.
