What does REG44 do?
REG44 is the only national register connecting a network of professionals working independently undertaking inspection and monitoring visits under Regulation 44 of The Children’s Homes (England) Regulations 2015 with public and private registered children’s home providers.
Providers of children’s homes are now required to appoint someone completely independent of the organisation and the day-to-day running of the home or any other home in the organisation and to ensure they regularly make new appointments of such persons. Anyone that is part of the organisation will no longer be accepted as suitable to undertake the task. Persons who have any interest in the running of the home, care planning, finance or administration will not be eligible to undertake Regulation 44 visits. Given the need to appoint an Independent Person, REG44 has put together this national register of Independent Regulation 44 Visitors to connect them with registered Children’s Home providers.
The future of REG44
REG44 is a developing service and in time will offer a range of services to both registered children’s home providers and independent Regulation 44 visitors such as the ability to complete a DBS check, secure portal for exchange of confidential information, good practice guidelines and much more.
