The Senior Manager – Children and Workforce gave an update to the Committee on Phase 2 of the Transformation Programme as requested at the last Scrutiny Committee.  He explained that the programme would be delivered in 2022.  Key issues were:-


·         An independent Evaluation of existing MST Team

·         The opening of a joint Flintshire/Wrexham Registered Residential Assessment Centre “Ty Nyth

·         A joint Flintshire/Wrexham crisis flat providing registered emergency accommodation and support in emergencies

·         A second MST Team providing assessment and therapy to build resilience and support family reunification and ‘move on’ from Ty Nyth

·         A registered Children’s Home providing long term placements for up to 4 Flintshire Children in a settled, homely environment.


In relation to a question raised by the Chairman the Senior Manager – Children and Workforce anticipated that they would be operational by autumn 2022 once CIW registration had been approved.  A further progress report would then be provided.


The recommendations in the report were moved by Councillor Gladys Healey and seconded by Councillor Jean Davies.
