Praise for Lancashire's facilities
10:53am Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
RECOGNITION for Lancashire's facilities for young people has come from a senior politician in Cardiff.
Siobhan Corria, Cardiff Council's cabinet member for children's services, visited after reading about a positive assessment of Lancashire's young people's services by the education watchdog Ofsted.
Coun Corria said: “I make no apologies for being on the lookout for good ideas and good practice and I found lots of both in Lancashire.
“I'm very impressed by the passion everyone at Lancashire County Council has for providing high-quality services for children and young people and I was struck by the commitment shown by staff and councillors – particularly the cabinet member responsible for young people's services.”
Matthew Tomlinson, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for children, young people and schools, said: “The county council runs such a wide range of services for young people that we were only able to show Siobhan a fraction of the things we do.
“I was delighted Siobhan decided to visit Lancashire and that she found her whistlestop tour of some of our facilities to be useful and informative.”
