Child protection services in Moray improving, say inspectors

Child protection services in Moray have been given a clean bill of health after an earlier critical report identified serious failings.

A report in 2009 warned that the local authority needed to make improvements in several areas.

A follow-up inspection found staff provided a prompt and effective response to immediate concerns about children at risk.

There will be no more inspections based on the 2009 report.

Leader of Moray Council, Allan Wright, said: "I am delighted that the hard work that the council and staff have put into improving child protection services in Moray has been recognised."
