“Oneplace” to visit for home moves out of area

| December 10, 2009 | 0 Comments

The Audit Commission has launched a new website that provides plenty of detailed information for home movers relocating to new areas in England.

“Oneplace” is described by the Government watchdog as a “reporting website for Comprehensive Area Assessment”, meaning the site includes independent information about how councils, police, health services and others are tackling the major issues of society, across every area in England.

It brings together the views of six independent inspectorates: the Audit Commission, Care Quality Commission, Ofsted, and Her Majesty’s Inspectorates of Constabulary, Prisons and Probation, and looks at how well local public services are delivered across 152 regions.

Green flags have been awarded to areas which provide exceptional performance, while areas performing below target are given a red flag.

For example, in Doncaster, which has a red flag, public services have not been doing enough to keep children safe and healthy or to ensure that they achieve good results in schools.

According to the Commission: “This is 21st century accountability, based on expert assessments of what services do for people, not how they are organised.”
