This practice guidance describes what is expected of residential child care workers who are registered with Social Care Wales and provides a practical tool to help staff to contribute to good outcomes for children and young people. The guidance can also be used by employers to assess whether they have arrangements in place to ensure a professional and safe service. Sections in the guidance cover: child-centred care and support; good residential child care practice; safeguarding individuals; health and safety; professional development; learning culture and contributing to the development of others; and contributing to the service, including raising concerns. The guidance builds on the ‘Code of professional practice for social care’, and serious failure to follow the guidance could put a workers’ registration at risk. [Updated in 2019].
