Ofsted Report - Lodge Group Care UK Ltd

You want to give your child the very best start in life, with care, love and support to develop skills they can carry through into adulthood. But for some children with learning disabilities or Autism, these needs can’t be met in their family home. Here is our latest Ofsted Report. 

This privately run children’s home provides care for up to six children. The provider states in its statement of purpose that the home cares for children with autism and learning disabilities.


The service provides one place for a short break and five longterm placements. The home registered with Ofsted in 2005 and the manager registered with Ofsted in 2013.


There were five children living in the home at the time of this inspection and one child was accessing short-break care.


This inspection was conducted on site and involved meetings with children, staff and managers. Email and telephone contact took place with parents, family members and placing authority social workers.


Due to COVID-19, at the request of the Secretary of State, we suspended all routine inspections of social care providers carried out under the social care common inspection framework (SCCIF) on 17 March 2020. We returned to routine SCCIF inspections on 12 April 2021.
