Suggested evidence

In addition to self-assessing your Homeshare scheme against the Homeshare UK Quality Assurance Framework you will also be asked to provide a range of evidence that demonstrates you are able to meet the requirements of this element.

You are required to either upload relevant documents and/or provide clear and concise narrative that explains how your organisation is working to achieve the requirements of the Quality Assurance Framework.

Please note your scheme must be able to demonstrate that they fully meet the Good Practice and Sound Process section of the element to meet baseline standards of the Quality Assurance framework.

For this element suitable evidence might include:

  • scheme policies including: Health and Safety, Safeguarding, Lone working policy, Data protection/ICT, Confidentiality, Equal Opportunities and Complaints
  • scheme practice and process guides for Homesharers and Householders.
  • information packs suitable for a range of audiences.
  • practice and policy guidelines are posted on the website and available in a range of formats.
  • organisational practice that ensures that project process, practice and policy is reviewed/ changed/ implemented

We would also like you to share evidence in relation to this element that will support learning for the network and key stakeholders interested in developing or supporting Homeshare:

  • research, consultation, focus groups work and underpinning evidence to support practice and process
  • practice, process and policy issues to support learning in the Homeshare community.
