Commissioner Patricia Bradwell
Commissioner Bradwell has been appointed as the Children's Social Care Commissioner at Rotherham Council by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
She replaced Commissioner Malcolm Newsam, who left in May 2016 after completing 18 months in the role.
Councillor Patricia Bradwell is currently Lincolnshire's deputy leader and has executive responsibilities for Adult Care and Health Services and Children's Services.
Commissioner Bradwell has overseen continued improvements in Children's Services for Lincolnshire County Council over the last 11 years. She took over responsibility for the Children's Services portfolio in April 2005. Since then, her work with colleagues and staff has led to Lincolnshire achieving and maintaining their high rating from Ofsted in their inspection of Children's Services, with Adoption Services being considered 'outstanding'.
Lincolnshire County Council will also be a practice improvement partner to provide peer support and challenge to build on the progress being made in children's social care. This will be led by Debbie Barnes, Director of Children's Services.
