The London councils of Richmond and Kingston are considering a merge of children’s services, according to reports.

Proposals for jointly providing services like adoption, fostering and special education needs were approved by councillors in Richmond, where councilllors voted to form a new social enterprise company called Achieving for Children. The not-for-profit company run by senior officers from both boroughs would work with schools, GPs, private and voluntary sectors to provide services.
