Transforming children’s services inquiry


Scope of the inquiry

Following on from its 2016 Child Protection Services report which drew similar conclusions around rising demand and variation between authorities, the Public Accounts Committee will question officials from the Department for Education and the Government’s Chief Social Worker for Children and Families on 4 February about the current pressures on children’s social care. Examining the Department’s understanding of demand and local variation, the Committee will investigate how it plans to achieve its programme of reform by 2022.
