CSSIW announces Adult Social Services Review – for January 2018

The Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) has informed Powys County Council that it will undertake an inspection of Powys County Council Adult Services starting on 22 January 2018.

The inspection will focus on how adults, their families and carers are empowered to access help and care and support services and on the quality of outcomes achieved for adults, their families and carers in need of help, care and support and/or protection. The inspection will also evaluate the quality of leadership, management and governance arrangements in place to develop and support service delivery. It is the first comprehensive inspection of Adult Services since 2015.

A report of the findings will be published by CSSIW and provided to the Minister for Health and Social Services.

We understand that the inspection will begin week commencing 22 January 2018 and approximately two weeks.

Powys County Council have already developed a comprehensive and costed improvement plan for adult services, in advance of the inspection. This is similar to that submitted to CSSIW for children's services.

Welsh Government and the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) has offered help to Powys in taking forward its improvement plans.

We will keep you informed about any other developments.
