Services for vulnerable children 'declining'5th March 2009
The Audit Commission has found that services for vulnerable children in England deteriorated last year.
The watchdog also said that it remains the weakest area of councils' work, though there has been stronger performances in other areas. Haringey, where the Baby P scandal took place, was among four councils to go from a three-star rating to one with Doncaster, Milton Keynes and Surrey. Only nine authorities achieved the maximum four stars - three fewer than had managed it in 2007.
