Double Praise from Ofsted

Last Updated: January 4, 2019

Ofsted have praised Doncaster Children’s Services Trust for their delivery of an ‘outstanding’ fostering service which, they say, ‘greatly enhances the life chances’ of children and young people.

The government watchdog has also given positive feedback to the Trust and Doncaster Council, for services they jointly deliver for children and young people with disabilities.

Inspectors have paid a visit to the Trust twice in recent weeks – one for a full inspection of the fostering service, which is delivered by the Trust on behalf of the council.
