Child protection ....

Community Care follows up on the Doncaster story with a piece about the climate of secrecy & turmoil whilst the Social Work blog comments on the response of councillors and refreshing honesty on the part of the interim Director, Dr Paul Gray. The BBC quotes an anonymous insider who claims that 60 children may be at risk because referrals are not being followed up.

Community Care also covers the response of the LGA to the proposal to make greater use of the private sector in delivering social services . Guess what? They're not keen.
