The inspection of children’s social care services in the City of Westminster found that the area was outstanding in all areas. They stated that ‘excellent services for vulnerable children in Westminster result in positive and enduring change for children and families’.
Interface have been busy over the last year supporting the creation of Family hubs and skilling up the workforce in this area. We were particularly delighted to read that ‘Exemplary early help services, and highly skilled assistance for children at risk of entering care, address difficulties in families quickly and effectively, reducing the numbers of children requiring a statutory child protection or child in need plan. Re-referral rates are low, indicating that interventions result in sustained improvements in children’s lives.’
Congratulations for all involved and for the ongoing dedication and commitment across all areas.
