Sharing concerns and information with Ofsted about children’s social care services

Ofsted can consider information you share with us and use it to inform our inspection and regulation of children’s social care services. This helps us determine if these services are providing children and young people with good experiences and helping them progress.

We cannot investigate individual concerns or grievances that you might have with the social care provider, such as employment matters or contractual disputes. If you have a grievance, you should refer to your organisation’s policies.

We also cannot investigate concerns about children who may be at risk of harm. If you have any concerns about children who are in need of protection, contact the relevant local authority.
