Essex County Council’s fostering service has been praised for keeping children and young people safe.
An Ofsted inspection also said the service is well led and managed and is effective.
The report found that children and young people have very positive views about the quality of their care and their relationships with their foster families.
It said in the report: “High quality care and support is consistently provided to all children and young people being cared for. As a result, placements are sustained and good outcomes for children and young people are promoted across all areas of their welfare and development.”
Cllr Dick Madden, Essex County Council’s cabinet member for families and children, said: “I was delighted to read this inspection report demonstrating the real value that fostering provides for children right across the county.
