Direction issued to Kirklees council

Direction issued to Kirklees council following an inadequate rating by Ofsted.



This direction confirms Eleanor Brazil as the Children’s Services Commissioner for Kirklees council. She will issue any necessary instructions to the council to improve children’s social care services. She will also review whether or not control of these services should be removed from the council.

This direction follows publication on 25 November 2016 of an Ofsted report that judged the overall effectiveness of Kirklees children’s social care services as inadequate.
