‘Worcestershire Children First’ is a company that now provides children’s services formed after the County Council’s service was put into special measures . Worcestershire County Council have set up a board with a number of members coming from the private sector paying them each an astonishing £500 a day.

Councillor Peter McDonald, who is a Labour member of Worcestershire County Council said “It seems a number of people are making a tremendous amount of money on the backs of our children. For every penny spent on board members is a penny less spent on our children who need every penny. It is shocking and disgraceful that council tax payers money should be used to feather the nest of those all ready well healed.”
