• ensure that children’s homes provide high quality care, set high aspirations for children and enable them to achieve their full potential, as the best homes already are; and

• support innovation in the sector, enabling skilled professionals to use their judgement to provide care that meets each child’s individual needs.

The regulations will come in force on 1 April 2015.
