Details

Joint targeted area inspections include a ‘deep dive’ investigation – an evaluation of children and young people’s experiences. This changes periodically to investigate different themes in detail. The theme for September 2016 to March 2017 was the response to children living with domestic abuse.

These documents should be read alongside the framework and guidance for the joint inspection of arrangements and services for children in need of help and protection.
