Cornwall 'failed to act'

October 2009
Community Care;10/29/2009, Issue 1793, p6
The article reports that Cornwall Council's children's services department failed to act on multiple recommendations made in a joint area review (JAR) more than a year ago, according to an Ofsted report. While Ofsted's September 2008 JAR rated Cornwall's children's services as adequate, one immediate course of action it recommended was the improvement of the quality of records kept on children's cases. Another key area highlighted for improvement was child and adolescent mental health services.
