Progress by Cardiff‘s children’s services praised

Cardiff’s children services will no longer be subjected to quarterly inspections after the Social Services Inspectorate for Wales announced the department had made real improvements.

The council was subjected to detailed monitoring every three months by the inspectorate after a critical inspection in 2002.

Meryl Gravell, chair of the Social Services Improvement Agency, which has been in regular contact with the council, said the news was evidence of the “strong will and determination across Wales to deliver positive step changes in social services and deliver real improvements for the people who need their services most”.

The inspectorate confirmed that the council was responding more promptly and effectively to initial concerns about children, and had made improvements in terms of planning for chidlren’s welfare and reviewing progress.
