As a care provider who has already published their DSPT to Approaching Standards (or Entry Level), you need to get to Standards Met the next time you complete your DSPT.

You cannot publish at Approaching Standards more than once.

You will see a different view of the DSPT once you have reached Approaching Standards. The new view will show all the mandatory questions you need to complete to get to Standards Met.

You should:

  1. review the Action Plan that you created in order to get to Approaching Standards
  2. complete all of the additional mandatory questions within the Toolkit
  3. publish the new standard you have reached.

We strongly recommend that you:

  • access our guidance, films, templates and resources to help you answer these questions
  • get free support from your Better Security, Better Care local support organisation.
