This document contains the national minimum standards (NMS) applicable to residential family centres. The NMS, together with the Residential Family Centres Regulations 2002, as amended, form the basis of the regulatory framework under the Care Standards Act 2000 (CSA) for the conduct of residential family centres.

Minimum standards do not mean standardisation of provision. The standards are designed to be applicable to different types of residential family centres. They aim to enable, rather than prevent, individual providers to develop their own particular ethos and approach based on evidence that this is the most appropriate way to meet the family’s needs.

The publication the includes:

  • principal standard
  • family-focused standards
  • standards of the residential family centre provider
