As detailed in the recommendation.


The Cabinet Member for Social Services presented the final version of the Social Services Annual Performance Report which had been prepared by the Social Enterprise, “Double Click Design”.


Every Chief Officer for Social Services was required to produce an annual report summarising their view of the authority’s social care services and priorities for improvement.  It would also form an integral part of the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) performance evaluation of Flintshire Social Services.


The Chief Officer, Social Services added that the overall assessment was that Social Services in Flintshire continued to drive forward service improvement, ensuring that there was an effective range of good quality services that supported and protected vulnerable people.  A range of examples to demonstrate that was provided within the report.


The achievements had been delivered within the context of strategic and operational challenges, including an increasing number of vulnerable children, young people and adults with complex care needs requiring support.  Never the less, good progress with the programme had been made to modernise social care.  However, it was recognised that there was a need to continue to adapt and modernise and the report detailed the priorities for service development and improvement in 2014/15.




That the Annual Report be agreed to inform the organisation, workforce, clients, partners, public and CSSIW of the assessment of performance and priorities for 2014/15.
