If a child is harmed or dies in your care as a result of suspected abuse or neglect then you can find yourself under the spot light of multiple interested parties.
This will include a Local Authority Safeguarding Children Board and Ofsted and providers may find that the police and coroner are also interested.
The primary purpose of a Serious Case Review (“SCR”) is to learn lessons from the situation however, often a finger gets pointed at the professionals who were caring for the child when they died, despite there being multiple party input to that care package.
These processes can be complex, daunting and overwhelming. Ridouts is well placed to advise a provider during a SCR which are often document heavy, detail driven investigations.
Ridouts can help you by:
They are saviours! They rescued my business – they are worth every penny!
You feel that you get both legal advice and consultancy, borne out of many years of dealing with regulators.
Caroline came back to me immediately with a high quality, considered response.
I was immediately impressed with Jenny’s knowledge in legal matters and how care homes work at a business level
I went to their symposium – it was a big investment of time – but it was wonderful – I learnt a lot and like the way they spoke – easy to understand, clear, friendly – I would definitely use them if I needed to – and would absolutely recommend them
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.
