Sub Category: Child protection

  • The Council has agreed to provide the Ombudsman with evidence that it has carried out the following actions: worked with the social team on the use of opinion in reports and the need to substantiate any recorded opinion; and introduced a new system to create a stronger emphasis on the views and contributions of family members going through child protection proceedings.
