Last Updated: September 2, 2016

The ‘significant progress’ made to improve services for children and young people in need of help and protection in Doncaster has been praised by Ofsted.

The inspection agency published its report today (September 2) following a detailed monitoring visit in August of Doncaster Children’s Services Trust, which delivers social care services including child protection, fostering, adoption, children homes and services to children with disabilities on behalf of Doncaster Council.

An independent review of the country’s first children’s services trust has praised the “energy and commitment” of staff to improve outcomes for children.

Doncaster Children’s Services Trust invited the Local Government Association (LGA) in July to carry out a review into how the Trust is keeping children safe and its progress made following its Ofsted inspection last October.  

The publication of the report comes a week after Ofsted inspectors praised the “significant progress” being made in Doncaster.  

“I couldn’t have asked for a better social worker.”
