Care leaders ‘neglected their duties’ to children as Ofsted finds serious social care failures at Newham Council

28 March 2019 – Public Sector Executive

An Ofsted report has found that vulnerable children in Newham are being put at risk by “serious failures” in social services and care leaders who have “neglected their duties” to children.

Inspectors reported a “significant deterioration” at Newham Council’s children’s services since 2014 and  noted “leaders are failing in their duties to children in care and care leavers.”

The children’s social care services were given an overall ‘inadequate’ rating.
