Social Services Annual Report

There is a statutory requirement from the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) for the Director of Social Services to produce an Annual Report.  The report is intended to tell the story of how well social services are being provided in Blaenau Gwent, by assessing progress against the priorities set for 2015/16 and to highlight key areas of performance.  The report also shows what priorities have been set for 2016/17.

The Annual Reporting process is made up of:

  • An overview summarising the Council’s effectiveness to deliver Social Services.
  • Case studies to demonstrate the contribution we have made to people's lives.
  • Key progress and challenges faced throughout 2015/16.
  • Key statistics.

There has been lots of input into the report from staff across the Council, partner agencies, service users, Health and other Authorities.
