Leicester children's social services department has been found to be in need of improvement.

During a recent OFSTED inspection, some children were found to still have too many changes of social worker with work needing to be done to ensure most children receive a good service.

OFSTED found that the department is however making ‘steady progress’ in their improvement programme and the way performance is monitored and quality is assured.

Cllr Sarah Russell, assistant city mayor for children, young people and schools, said:

“This report shows that we are now meeting time targets for the vast majority of children we work with, and that we are taking clear steps to ensure that the interventions we have to make into children’s lives are timely, appropriate and relevant.We’re encouraged by Ofsted’s findings and will take on board the inspectors’ advice and recommendations to help us improve further.”
