I am requesting figures for the number of children’s residential care homes outsourced to
private providers in the area under the Council’s Authority.
We have defined “outsourced to private providers” to mean the number of OFSTED registered children’s homes in the Devon Area that are not operated by Devon County Council (DCC) but which have DCC looked after children placed. The total is twenty.
In addition to this I would like to request figures for the number of children in the Local
Authority’s jurisdiction at residential care homes which are currently deemed as ‘inadequate ‘requires improvement’ under Ofsted guidelines.
There are eleven (11) children (looked after by DCC) placed at 6 Children’s Homes within Devon area that are rated as “Requires Improvement”.
