Anglesey social services on the up

A report into the state of social services in Anglesey says there have been significant improvements all round.

The local council is now ‘providing mainly good services’ which it is ‘well placed to sustain’ thanks to solid investment, according to the review carried out by the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales and the Wales Audit Office

However, the review also called for Isle of Anglesey County Council to provide ‘more effective leadership and a clear sense of direction.’

“Range of service has improved significantly, with many people being supported to remain at home and to maintain their independence,” the report said.

“Anglesey benefits from having a well-trained and committed group of staff in social services who are working hard to deliver high standards of care.

“Political instability has continued to create uncertainty and diverted attention from the improvement agenda by inhibiting effective decision-making and slowing the pace of change.”
