Registration of extra care

Extra care is distinct from residential care in that it provides self-contained accommodation, which individuals have a legal right to occupy. This means that different requirements exist regarding the government registration system that is designed to safeguard users of social care services. The resources listed below provide guidance on the relevant requirement.

For information about registration of extra care housing that is being used for short term care such as intermediate care or respite see document on the Commissioning - Intermediate Care page.
