Guidance Documents for Childrens Home


Recommended Posts

I've done several for a Council and the DCLG Sleeping Risk guide with relevant input from the NFCC Specialised Housing ended up being the most appropriate as they weren't care or nursing homes nor private dwellings or HMO's

The consensus along with the enforcing authority was the risk profile of the occupiers, even with staff on site, warranted the more robust basic  measures in the DCLG guide with further influence from the results of person centred FRAs (as per NFCC) as indicated.

Arson, damage and self harm are sometimes considerations requiring anti barricade doors that are also FD30s doors and anti ligature (expensive but achievable). Deprivation of Liberty authorisations and the sometimes higher risk to the service user from being able to abscond creates interesting considerations when it comes to escape fastenings on final exits!
