Code of Practice

Posted on December 4, 2014 at 1:44 am

We would  like to remind all carers that the new Code of Practice has been in place since March 2013. We have had a 24 month transition period to ensure our facilities meet with the minimum enclosure sizes as per the Code. EHP may be checking on carer facilities in the new year.

We recommend that all carers familiarise themselves with the new sizes and ensure your facilities meet these minimum standards. If your enclosures do not meet these standards then a plan needs to be put into place to increase them.

A copy of the code is available via this website

Should you have any queries regarding these requirements please contact your local QWRC Councillor.
