Ofsted Recognition - "Better... adoption decision-making"

Ofsted has rated Calderdale Council’s Children and Young People’s Services as ‘good’ overall with ‘outstanding’ features following an inspection in November 2018. As part of the One Adoption West Yorkshire RAA, we are delighted that Calderdale’s innovative use of the Cornerstone Library came in for particular praise.

The Ofsted report noted:

‘The Regional Adoption Agency is currently piloting highly creative training for prospective adopters using virtual reality headsets. The virtual environment recreates the trauma that some children experience in their home lives prior to coming into care in order to better support adoption decision-making.’

Many congratulations to the Calderdale team - we look forward to continuing to work with you!
