A report by Ofsted has found that 20 councils in England have “unacceptably poor” child protection services, with only one in four local authorities judged to be good at safeguarding children.  The report highlights the need for further improvement. Debbie Jones, Ofsted’s national director for social care said “Ofsted will be rigorous in holding local councils and social care providers to account but we will also support them to make the improvements that children deserve.” (Source: The Guardian)
