Details

Ofsted commissioned this thematic inspection to gain a more accurate picture of how effectively local partnerships’ early help services are improving children’s circumstances, reducing risk and taking further action when needed.

The report draws on evidence from inspection, from examining cases in 12 local authorities and from the views of children and young people, parents, carers, practitioners and managers.
