The London Borough of Lambeth Council’s children’s social care services became subject to Government intervention in May 2015, following Ofsted’s judgement that these services are ‘Inadequate’. The Department has issued the Council with an improvement notice and has appointed an expert adviser to provide the Council with advice and challenge and to report regularly to the Department on improvement progress. Ofsted also conducts quarterly monitoring visits to Lambeth’s children’s social care services, and publishes progress reports on its website.
