Direction to Bromley borough council

DfE notifies Bromley borough council that it must work with a commissioner to improve performance in children's social care services.



A direction instructs a local authority to take steps following the failure of their social care services.

This direction requires the council to co-operate with a commissioner appointed by the Secretary of State.

It follows publication on 27 June 2016 of a report by Ofsted which judged the overall effectiveness of Bromley’s children’s social care services as inadequate.
