dc.descriptionHIQA recognises the importance of increasing the quality and safety of care for all children, especially children who are particularly vulnerable and are living away from their families. In 2017, the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) developed National Standards for Children’s Residential Centres . These National Standards are designed to apply to all children’s residential centres - private, voluntary and statutory and will replace the 2001 National Standards developed by the Department of Health and Children.(1) The National Standards for Children’s Residential Centres aim to give a shared voice to the expectations of all children living in residential centres and all those involved in their care. The standards also show what a child-centred, safe and effective children’s residential centre should look like, and in particular they:  create a basis for improving the quality and safety of children’s residential care by identifying strengths and highlighting areas for improvement  provide children living in residential centres and their families with a guide to what they should expect from the service. The Health Information and Standards Directorate’s Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) describes the process to be followed during the development of standards, guidance and recommendations conducted by, or on behalf of, the Directorate. The Standards Team followed the process set out in the QAF at all stages in the development of these National Standards. In line with the QAF, HIQA undertook a focused desktop review of national and international literature which was used to inform the first draft. This review took account of published research, investigations and reviews of children’s residential centres in Ireland, as well as standards and guidelines in other countries. All documents reviewed and assessed to be included in the evidence base to inform these standards are outlined in The Background document to support the development of National Standards for Children’s Residential Centres (September 2017) which is available on www.hiqa.ie.en_US
