Care Inspectorate Reports
Our ethos is based on person centred practice, N.L.P and solution focused skills.
We, like all other Independent Child Care organisations in Scotland, are inspected at regular intervals by Officers of the Care Inspectorate. We are judged against the Care Standards (Care Homes for Children and Young People).

Of course Common Thread also has an integrated educational facility in Merrick School. The school has been open for twelve months and as with all such enterprises is and always should be a work in progress. Our first full inspection was published on the 24th of August 2010 and whilst wedo of course see the areas we need to improve on we are very pleased with this first effort by our educational team.
