All children's services apart from education are to be removed from Doncaster Council.
A new independent, not for profit Trust will be set up to deliver them instead.
It follows a series of failings by the local authority regarding children in its care. In 2009 the government ordered a takeover of the service after seven children died as a result of abuse or neglect over a five year period. It was then followed by a serious case review, which concluded that the torture of two young boys in Edlington had been "preventable".
In March 2009, the government ordered a takeover of Doncaster's children's services after the deaths of seven children in the district through abuse or neglect over five years.
Less than a year later, a serious case review found the attacks in the nearby town of Edlington, in which two young boys were tortured by two brothers, aged 11 and 12, had been "preventable".
The Department for Education says that a report by Professor Julian Le Grand has found little evidence of improvement in Doncaster, and points to a culture of failure and disillusion which is obstructing reform.
