London borough praised for work with care leavers

The London Borough of Ealing has been hailed by Ofsted for its work with care leavers.

Following an inspection of its children’s services department, Ofsted awarded the West London authority a ‘good’ rating. The inspectorate singled out its work with young people who have left the care system for particular praise. Social workers stay in contact and the majority live in accommodation suitable for their age and needs.

In addition, the report states:

“Health needs are addressed and high numbers are in education, employment and training.”

Care leavers are helped to gain useful skills and some go on to become role models and “leaving mentors” to younger children.

Care leavers have access to an “education and achievement centre” called Horizons and the inspectors declared that this did “outstanding work” in helping leavers train and prepare for independent adult life.

“The centre offers an accessible, inclusive safe haven for looked-after children and care leavers for as long as it is needed.”

Ofsted concluded that the department offered first rate “corporate parenting” and had displayed “real passion, ambition and creativity to ensure that children reach their full potential.”
