Consultation paper – Establishment of an Accreditation Scheme for Children’s Contact Services

Publication date

We have prepared this paper to seek the views of a range of stakeholders to help inform the possible establishment of an accreditation scheme for Children’s Contact Services (CCS). This includes minimum service delivery and safety requirements and standards.

Under an accreditation scheme, all CCS would be required to meet and maintain a minimum standard that would professionalise the service and ensure the safety and well-being of children, their families and staff.
