Transforming children’s services

This report looks at the current pressures on children's social care and what the Department for Education has been doing to make the quality or finances of these services sustainable.

The report concludes that the Department for Education has not done enough and requires: a step-change in the understanding of pressures; the reduction of unnecessary variation between areas in their social care activities and the costs of providing them; and greater pace in its work with struggling local authorities.
