Revised statutory direction issued to North East Lincolnshire Council in relation to children’s services.

Applies to England



This direction is closed.  A revised direction, which DfE issued in May 2024, replaces it.

This direction requires the council to take steps to improve its children’s social care services.

It follows:

  • Ofsted’s inspection report of North East Lincolnshire Council local authority children’s services published 26 November 2021 that judged services to be inadequate across all sub judgements

  • an independent report by Peter Dwyer CBE, the North East Lincolnshire Children’s Services Commissioner at the time
