Responsibility for the Licensing, Registration and Regulation of care facilities for children and adults is vested with the Inspector of Social Services Institutions (ISSI) as stipulated under the Social Services Agencies Act.
Through this function, the ISSI ensures agency compliance with minimum operating standards as prescribed by law. Understanding that ‘quality improvement of service’ is continuous and cannot be pursued by mere enforcement; but rather by stakeholder agencies themselves embracing a Quality Improvement approach, the ISSI works closely in partnership via a participatory and capacity enhancement modality to better guarantee positive outcomes.
