We have today published a letter summarising the findings of our monitoring activity undertaken in Wrexham social services for children from 26 April 2021 to 29 April 2021
The intention of monitoring activity is to provide assurance that Wrexham social services remains on a positive journey of improvement.
CIW undertook monitoring of Wrexham CBC children’s social services to follow up on the findings of our inspection in October 2020 in which we judged services to remain inadequate with early indicators of improvement. That means services were consistently failing to meet statutory duties but children were not found to be unsupported and at immediate risk of harm or abuse.
From the evidence gained during this monitoring visit, it is our judgement that Wrexham CBC children’s social services is continuing to make improvements required.
We intend to follow up with a further monitoring visit in the next six to eight months and to undertake a full inspection in 12 months. All our findings from this monitoring visit can be found in the letter issued to the local authority attached below.
