It is very sad to read that child protection services in Doncaster are still struggling.

What seems to me to be totally unacceptable is that three years after the Edlington tragedy, and special measures being put in to ‘turn-around’ Doncaster, the council still seems to be failing with high case loads, shortages of experienced staff and too much administration.

The Department for Education and Ofsted have been involved in trying to improve services in Doncaster since 2009. How can it take so long to make a difference?
