ABSTRACT
The article reports that Doncaster Council in England has drawn up a three-year plan to transform its children's services from inadequate to outstanding. In a draft the Council bids to reduce children's services vacancy rates to 7% as part of manifesto. It was followed by a highly critical Department for Children, Schools and Families review, which found that safeguarding practice remained inadequate. The plan has been drawn up by interim children's services director Gareth Williams.
