Providers may find themselves involved in safeguarding investigations, whether that is through self-reported matters or because third-parties make a referral or allegation.
Enquiries can sometimes lead to difficult, protracted and opaque section 47 safeguarding investigations. They can lead to embargoes and young people and children being removed from the home.
Investigations can be highly disruptive, drain morale and leave services financially vulnerable with reputations damaged.
Providers can find themselves subject to investigations which are fundamentally unfair with incorrect conclusions drawn. Even if the final findings demonstrate there is no basis for the allegation, damage can have already been caused.

I know for a fact that the CQC fear Ridouts – they know you are taking it seriously if you work with Ridouts.
I got through to Paul immediately and he told me what to do there and then; I didn’t realise how limited the Local Authority’s powers were.
A superlative job – Thank You seems insufficient.
