Based on Ofsted registration guidance, this resource is designed to enable supported accommodation providers and local authority practitioners to understand the registration process from start to finish.
Our process map provides a clear overview of each stage of the registration process and all actions supported accommodation providers must take to successfully register with Ofsted. It can also be used to track the progress of applications.
