We have today published our risk-based inspection report of Cardiff Council social services

The report summarises the findings of our inspection of social services between 23 November and 3 December 2020.

This inspection reviewed how well children’s social services has progressed on its journey of improvement, and how well Cardiff Council social services continue to help and support adults and children.

We focused on:

  • how well local authorities discharge their statutory functions to keep people safe and promote well-being during the pandemic;
  • how well local authorities are providing early help, care and support and seamless transitions between services for disabled children and their families; and
  • what local authorities are doing to prevent the need for children to come into care, and whether children are returning home to their families quickly enough where safe to do so.

All our findings and recommendations from these inspections can be found on the report page: Risk based inspection of Cardiff Council social services.
