COVID-19 Statement – April 2021 update

We are still providing consistent quality care to the young people in our homes during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Please refer young people using the same methods of communication. To our Responsible Individual Dawn Ives on d.ives@my-choice-homes.com or Company Director Alex Hyland on a.hyland@my-choice-homes.com.

Head office Number: 01444 446920.

We are adhering and taking the necessary guidance from the Government and Ofsted for Childrens Homes during the coronavirus pandemic. Due to this each home has specific risk assessments completed bespoke to the area and presenting needs.

The residential care staff are required to adhere to hygiene routines. The young people and staff are utilising the gardens of the homes, local areas for exercise and working with the placing authorities where needed. Working together is vitally important during these unprecedented times.

We have re- opened training for staff from March 2021 following the temporary closure of the training centre to adhere with guidance.  Social distancing measures are in place.
Staff are however able to access a variety of online learning and Diploma support to ensure continued professional development.

Our Regulation 44 inspector continues to visit the homes and produces detailed reports. The visits have been adapted and the time spent in each home has been reduced particularly during lockdown. Information for the Regulation 44 visitor is accessed through our Clear Care system and phone conversations.

Our My Choice School remains open.
