What is an Independent Monitoring Service/Reg 44 Visit?
NYAS’ network of independent inspectors (also called independent visitors) undertake regular visits to residential settings. Their role is to review the facilities and performance of the staff and talk to the children and young people to ensure they are receiving the best possible care.
Our inspectors follow a consistent approach which promotes attention to detail. Their written reports should be insightful and showcase the home's development and progress.
Our independent visitors come from a variety of professional backgrounds and have excellent communication skills. This allows them to establish and build rapport with young people and staff. They are committed to supporting residential homes to achieve the highest standards and best outcomes the children and young people in their care
It is now a legal requirement to have an individual who is completely independent of the organisation to undertake the inspection on behalf of the provider.
