Short observational framework for inspection

Find out more about short observational framework for inspection (SOFI) and how our inspectors use it.

What is SOFI?

In some of our inspection reports, you may read about SOFI or ‘SOFI 2’, which stands for short observational framework for inspection.

SOFI is a tool developed with the University of Bradford’s School of Dementia Studies and used by our inspectors to capture the experiences of people who use services who may not be able to express this for themselves.
