A new set of inspections will examine how local partner agencies - including local authorities, health and probation services and the police - are working together to protect children living with, or at risk of, neglect.
The series of 6 joint targeted area inspections (JTAI) involving Ofsted, Care Quality Commission (CQC), HMI Constabulary and HMI Probation will begin in May this year.
JTAI assess how effectively agencies are working together in their local area to help and protect children. Each set of joint inspections also evaluates the multi-agency response to a particular issue or theme. Click here for more information.
