Written Statement - Sustainable Social Services for Wales: A Framework for Action -Response from Care Council for Wales and the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales
I launched Sustainable Social Services for Wales: A Framework for Action in 2011, setting out how the Welsh Government will take social services and social care forward and how we will work with our partners to deliver this transformational change.
Since then, a significant programme of work has been established within Welsh Government to deliver the commitments in Sustainable Social Services. To ensure that we have collective leadership to drive the change and monitor progress I have established the Social Services Partnership Forum, made up of Local Government, Care Council for Wales and the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales, Health, the Third and independent sector members.
In March 2011, I wrote to the Care Council for Wales and the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales asking for their proposals for delivering Sustainable Social Services.
I have said that I will keep you informed as this work develops and I am pleased to report that in response to my request for proposals for implementing Sustainable Social Services, I received a single considered response from them in December 2011.
My Partnership Forum considered the response and I have met with the two organisations. Having carefully considered the joint response, I have now written to Care Council for Wales and the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales setting out my response to their proposals. A copy of my letter is attached.
Their future work in taking this forward will now be included within their normal business activities and will be coordinated through existing engagement mechanisms.
