Cornwall’s Children Care Social Services out of intervention

Cornwall Council has been told by the Government Children’s Minister that the councils children care social services has been officially removed from Government intervention. The council was placed in intervention back in 2009 after inspectors found many failings in the service.


Massive congratulations should go to all staff who have worked extremely hard in achieving both a positive OFSTED inspection and now being officially removed from intervention. It has been a long and sometimes painful journey, but I am glad this hard work has been rewarded.

Well done

    Staff’s hard work rewarded with a sharp cut in funding from this year’s in real terms budget cuts from some Councillors? Still I’m sure there’s further efficiency savings to be made……It won’t be a problem. (Or WILL it??)
