<p>Children's social care services in Lancashire were judged as ‘Requires Improvement' by Ofsted in August 2018. This followed a period of intervention by the department after an earlier ‘Inadequate’ judgement in 2015. As a result, services in Lancashire are now in a period of support and supervision and will receive regular support and challenge from the department to ensure that recent improvements are sustained.</p><p>The government is committed to improving outcomes for disadvantaged children and young people. That is why our children’s social care reform programme is working to deliver a highly capable, highly skilled social work workforce as well as high performing services everywhere and a national system of excellent and innovative practice.</p><p>The Autumn Budget announced a further £410 million in 2019-20 for local authorities to invest in adult and children’s social care services. We are also investing £84 million in targeted evidence-based interventions to unlock better work with vulnerable children and their families. This is in addition to the over £200 billion that was made available at the 2015 Spending Review until 2020 for councils to deliver local services, including children’s services.</p>
