Celebrating one year of our Data Tool
Today marks the one-year anniversary of our interactive data visualisation tool, which provides information on the number of services and places regulated by us.
Within our Strategic Plan 2020-2025, we set out to make information more accessible and share our intelligence and data with members of the public, providers, local authorities, health boards and wider stakeholders.
The fully bilingual Data Tool is a key part of this work and has received more than 1,100 visits since its launch a year ago.
In November 2022, the Welsh Language Commissioner praised the tool in relation to promoting the Welsh language:
This data tool is an example of how the discourse has moved on from users simply being able to use public information in their preferred language and that the Welsh language provision is now a key component. It’s also an example of an organisation that’s gone a step further and promotes and raises awareness of Welsh language services in the care sector across Wales, and encourages the use of the Welsh language services that are available.
