Services for children and families in Croydon have been rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, two and a half years after the borough launched a major improvement drive. Inspectors found the service ‘dramatically improved’ and ‘transformed’ since its ‘inadequate’ judgement in September 2017.
Croydon Council celebrated the amazing achievements of children and young people in care and care-leavers at a glittering awards ceremony this week (Wednesday 24 October).
Young care-leavers in Croydon can now see how the council plans to support them as they transition into adulthood, making sure they are safe, well and accessing every opportunity the borough has to offer.
Croydon is to celebrate the talents and successes of young people looked after by the local authority with a new high-profile event hosted by British author and broadcaster Lemn Sissay.
