Read the final blog from Andy as part of our special series of blogs for National Care Leavers' week. 

Well, it is all over and today is my last blog as part of the series I’ve done for this year’s National Care Leavers’ Week.

I wanted to talk to you about what I’ve learned and what we will be trying to do going forward to further improve the offer to care leavers in Doncaster. But first a little update about how I got on over the weekend.

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

In its report, published today (Wednesday 23 November) the inspection agency outlined its findings following a second detailed monitoring visit to the Trust, which delivers social care services including child protection, fostering, adoption, children’s homes and services to children with disabilities on behalf of Doncaster Council.

“Having an Independent Visitor volunteer was the best thing that ever happened to me, and nine years later we’re still going strong. I'd be lost without you guys.”
