Children’s services at a north-east council have greatly improved, according to a watchdog.
The Care Inspectorate carried out a follow-up inspection of the Moray Council department after it was found youngsters in the Community Planning Partnership were being left at risk for too long.
In its initial report in 2016, the watchdog also raised concerns about how agencies across the region work together.
However, in a new report, the Care Inspectorate has praised the level of work that has been done to improve.
On top of the praise, the report also outlined a six-point plan to ensure the continued improvement of the service.
Susan Webb, director of public health at NHS Grampian, said: “It has been an intense period of activity, but it’s clear to inspectors that we are well on the way to achieving our aspirations for all the vulnerable children and young people in Moray.”
