This report sets out the findings of the commissioner’s 3-month review and makes recommendations for the improvement of children’s social care services in Blackpool.

It follows a report by Ofsted that judged the overall effectiveness of the council’s children’s social care services to be inadequate.

We issued a statutory direction to Blackpool Council on the 22 July 2019.
