Vale of Glamorgan County Council’s children and young people’s services and adult services evaluation report has been published
The inspection took place in January 2023.
The purpose of the inspection was to review Vale of Glamorgan County Council’s children and young people’s services and adult services.
We found, as with many local authorities in Wales, Vale of Glamorgan is experiencing a challenging time in relation to the provision of social care. Many of the pressures experienced by the local authority reflect the pandemic recovery context, resulting in high levels of demand and increased complexity of people’s needs, including the impact of the ‘cost of living’ crisis.
We found clear evidence of improvements and progress made by the local authority, following an assurance check of children and young people’s services we conducted in March and November 2021. These improvements have resulted in better outcomes for children, young people and their families.
