Our journey so far

Our journey so far

In July 2015 Sunderland children’s services were placed under ‘Direction’ by the Department for Education (DfE). Sunderland Council and the DfE then reached voluntary agreement to consider an alternative service model.

The development of Together for Children began following that decision and the Company was officially launched in April 2017.

As Together for Children we have seen sustained and significant improvements in the quality of our services. Our last five Ofsted monitoring visits have shown progress across the business.
