Cornwall Councils support for children and Young people rated Outstanding by Ofsted

In October 2019 Ofsted Inspectors visited Cornwall. They looked at the help, protection and care that workers in the Council give to children and young people in Cornwall. The overall rating for Cornwall Council was outstanding and we are now the best rated local authority in the South West!

The Care4Change Council (which is made up of young people in and leaving care) was mentioned as effective in helping the Council listen to what young people think is important. Apprentice workers with Care experience and Carefree were talked about as an important part of the service provided for young people in and Leaving Care.

One of the areas identified for improvement was life story work to help children and young people understand their journey better. Young people from Carefree have made a film about Life story work to help professionals understand what works for young people.

Cornwall Council offers a wide range of work experience placements for people aged 14 and over, to experience the work environment and we welcome interest from Children in Care and Care Leavers, as part of our initiative to help Children in Care explore potential future employment opportunities.


Placements benefit your personal and professional development and you'll gain an insight into how we deliver our services by work shadowing and getting some 'hands on' practical experience. This could help you in future job applications.

The skills you will gain from work experience are:
