Better Care, Better Services
In 2006, the Better Care, Better Services Standards were developed in partnership between the Department for Child Protection and Out of Home Care Placement Service organisations, such as MercyCare. The standards were developed to ensure that all children and young people in the care of the Department for Child Protection receive a consistent standard of service that protects their safety and wellbeing. The objective is to provide the highest quality of services to children and young people in care, to ensure all aspects of their needs and development are being met and to ensure the best outcomes are achieved.
MercyCare Fostering Services programme is assessed by external regulators and is committed to ensuring the Better Care, Better Services Standards are being met and that continuous improvement of service delivery by MercyCare to children and young people in care is maintained.
