By on 29/11/2013 in Leader, News

Sir Albert Bore, Leader of Birmingham City Council, welcomed the helpful approach to improving children's services in the city by Department for Education minister, Edward Timpson, in his letter to Sir Albert today.

Sir Albert said: “The minister and I spoke this morning and I welcome the support and challenge to our own plans to improve our own performance, to ensure the safety and best outcomes for our children and young people in Birmingham.

“The independent approach from professionals and academics in the field of children's social care will not only assess our plans for sustainable improvement but also test our own assessment of the progress we have made.

“This will lead to a report to Edward Timpson for him to ensure that the right action has been taken to ensure the safety of our children.”

Sir Albert added that he also welcomed the intention by children's minister, Edward Timpson, to visit Birmingham himself in the near future and meet some of the city council's social workers.
