Doncaster Wins Case Over Plans To Outsource Children’s Services
Doncaster Council has succeeded in modifying the government’s plan to remove children’s services from the council entirely.
The government has agreed that Doncaster council can help design and commission the independent trust that will take over its children’s services department for the next five to 10 years.
Education secretary Michael Gove has written to Ros Jones, the mayor of Doncaster, agreeing to plans put forward by the council to be involved in setting up the arms length body.
Under the plans, Doncaster’s director of children’s services would become the chief executive of the trust, while the board of the trust would consist of senior leaders from other local agencies.
Staff would be seconded, rather than transferred, to the trust so would still be able to access the Local Government Pension Scheme.
