What organisations can register on Haricare or FISD

Haricare and FISD are provided by Haringey Council Department of Adult Social Services and Children’s department as a service for local residents. It aims to meet our duty to provide information under the Care Act 2014, both directly as a site residents can access, and as an information resource for staff who are dealing with members of the public.

Haricare provides information about products or services that may be useful to adults who may need care and support as defined under the Care Act 2014 and their carers. This includes adults with physical, mental, sensory, learning or cognitive disabilities or illnesses, substance misuse or brain injury.

The site for children and families, FISD, has products or services for children or to support adults with caring for children. This includes all children, as well as services for children with Special educational needs and disabilities

We aim to provide information about resources which are:-

  1. Free or with a nominal cost so that someone may access them to reduce their need to rely on a personal budget from Social Services.
  2. Childcare services who are registered on OFSTED will appear on Synergy and should update thier listings there
  3. Paid for so that they can be accessed by someone who
    1. is receiving a Direct Payment from Social Services,
    2. has needs that are or are likely to be eligible for a personal budget, but has funds that mean they will be a self funder

We will put some essential services on as managed providers, but we invite organisations to register so they are managing their own information.

Registered organisations need to provide certain documents before their information can be shown on the website:-

  • If they provide services that should be CQC registered they must include their CQC numbers so the site will confirm their current CQC status.
  • If they provide services which are or should be OFSTED registered they must provide an OFSTED URN so we can confirm their OFSTED status

Inclusion criteria

  • Haricare does not need to reproduce information that is on other web directories or can be easily found with an internet search. We are aware that national organisations may be asked to register on local websites for every authority in the country
