Stephensons has a team of specialist regulatory lawyers who provide advice and representation to Ofsted registered social care providers in relation to compliance, challenging inspections and enforcement action. We are experienced in representing providers in appeals to the First-tier Tribunal (Health, Education and Social Care Chamber) against cancellation notices, suspension notices and notices restricting accommodation. We also represent social care providers in respect of proposals to refuse registration and any subsequent appeals.
Our specialist Ofsted lawyers understand the intense pressure on providers to comply with the vast and complex regulations governing regulated settings, whilst ensuring that children are suitably protected and safeguarded. We appreciate how a negative inspection report, or any potential enforcement action, can affect your business significantly, and, in many cases, unfairly so.
It is important to protect your business and reputation with legal advice from a specialist before you take any action. Defending you and your business is our primary concern.
