Children's Improvement Board
The Children's Improvement Board was a partnership between the LGA, the Association of Directors of Children's Services (ADCS) and the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives (SOLACE). Funding from the Department for Education for CIB's work was withdrawn in April 2013. Important elements of CIB's previous work programme have now been taken forward by the LGA as part of its sector-led improvement offer to councils and the three organisations on CIB are continuing to work together in partnership to support improvement. See below for resources developed through CIB.

The Children's Improvement Board worked in partnership with councils through 15 'Development Demonstrator' sites, to learn from different approaches to service improvement and development in the areas of implementing Munro recommendations, and early years.
The aim of the Family Justice Review (FJR) was to assess how effective the current system operates and make recommendations for reform. This toolkit contains examples that Action for Children collated so that local authority staff could learn from each other and share good practice models.
The Children's Improvement Board supported a number of local authorities to understand the performance of their adoption services and to make improvements. As part of this work, a number of diagnostic assessments were carried out in local authorities. Drawing on the learning from these assessments and feedback from councils, an adoption diagnostic is now available to any council who may find it useful.
