The Care Inspectorate is the unified independent scrutiny and improvement body for care and children’s services. 

We regulate and inspect care services and carry out social work and child protection inspections to provide assurance and protection for people in Scotland who use these services.  We work with a number of organisations, professionals, people who use services, and their carers to help improve the quality of services and act as a catalyst for change and innovation.
