Support for Cornish carers and children in care gets the thumbs up.

Ofsted have rated the council's fostering service as good with outstanding features.

Inspectors said young people are "kept safe and feel safe".

The report's been welcomed by Neil Burden, the Council's portfolio holder for children's services:

"As corporate parents we are very reassured that this inspection has highlighted the quality of Cornwall's fostering service"

"Our foster carers make an enormous contribution and commitment in caring for children in Cornwall.  The incredible work they do and the difference they make to the lives of the children they care for lasts a lifetime"

"I would like to extend huge congratulations to our carers and the Council's fostering team, with special thanks to our children and young people who have acknowledged the very special support they receive"

Trevor Doughty, the Council's Director of Children, Schools and Families said:    

"This is a very encouraging result, which reflects the excellent partnership working between social workers and other social care workers, carers, carers' own children and other professionals"

"Carers are included in all aspects of the service, including development areas such as training, short breaks and celebration events and I am pleased that this positive relationship has been recognised in the report."

"The changes which have been made to the Ofsted inspection regime mean that it is now much tougher to achieve a good judgement across the board. This judgement is further evidence of improving children's services in Cornwall"
