As detailed in the recommendations.


Councillor Jones introduced the report which presented the content of the recent Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) Annual Performance Letter which had been published on 2nd July 2020.


Each year an annual letter was sent to each local authority in Wales and published on the CIW website.  Each letter summarised CIW’s evaluation of performance in relation to adults and children’s services during the financial year and reported against the four core principles of the Social Services and Well-being Act.  The letter also set out CIW’s individual work programme to review performance over the coming year.


The Chief Officer (Social Services) said it was a positive report with recognition for progressive projects.  Some challenges were outlined in the report and the executive response was appended to the report.


The Chief Executive commented that this was consistent feedback received from CIW which gave the Council confidence.




(a)       That the content of the Annual Performance Letter and Care Inspectorate Wales assessment of the authority’s performance during the year 2019/20 be noted and Cabinet be assured by it; and


(b)       That it be noted that the Care Inspectorate Wales Performance Review Plan 2020/21 has been paused, and that the Council will be notified once the programme of inspection re-commences.
