Updated: All documents replaced: we have updated the types of financial information required by trusts and included more information about children’s homes location assessments.
Please note that social care providers and managers will only be able to apply online in the near future. Ofsted will confirm the date in advance. After this date we will no longer accept paper application forms.
This guidance will help you decide whether you need to apply for registration and explains what processes your application will go through before we can decide whether you are suitable to be registered as a social care provider or manager.
