LIB DEM RESPONSE TO HARINGEY SOCIAL SERVICES' 2-STAR RATING

Speaking in response to news that Haringey Council’s Social Services have been awarded a two-star rating from the Commission for Social Care Inspection, Lib Dem social services spokesperson Cllr Wayne Hoban comments:

“Haringey social services certainly need to see improvements in its ratings, and these improvements are from a very low base.

“There is still clear evidence that Haringey Council is failing to adequately improve the service in key areas, such as failure to achieve targets set for timely assessments, without which vulnerable people cannot obtain the services they may be entitled to, failures in child protection procedures, with particular reference to SEN children within education, and poor co-ordination and continuity of cover due to high levels of temporary staff.”
