Worcestershire children’s services: non-executive commissioner's report

An independent report from Trevor Doughty, the non-executive Commissioner for Children’s Services in Worcestershire.



This report recommends that Worcestershire county council works with the commissioner and DfE to develop an alternative way to provide children’s services.

It follows an Ofsted report that judged the overall effectiveness of those services to be inadequate.

DfE issued a revised statutory direction to Worcestershire county council in September 2017.
