Responding to the publication of the Care Inspectorate Wales’ Children’s Services Inspection, Labour Group Leader Cllr Matthew Dorrance said:
“The Council has funnelled a significant amount of money into Children’s Services to drive up standards and ensure Children in Powys are safe so I welcome the inspection report which shows the Council is now making progress in improving the service.
“It is clear to me that the hard work of frontline staff is driving the improvements and they deserve our thanks and support.
“However, the Council must be honest about the fact that after ploughing millions of pounds into the service, the inspectors have said there are still areas within Children’s Services where they have ‘serious concerns’.
“The Council must, as a priority, take action to put right the problems identified by Inspectors to ensure children and young people in Powys are safe.”
Matthew’s comments come after Care Inspectorate Wales publishes its latest Children’s Services inspection report. You can read the full report here.
