ADSS Cymru Welcomes the Care Crisis Review 2018
The Association of Directors of Social Services (ADSS) Cymru welcomes the launch in England of the Care Crisis review, an independent study of the child welfare and family justice system in England and Wales, which ADSS Cymru has collaborated on. A launch event will be taking place at Welsh Government on 29 June.
The review illustrates that the crisis is being felt in Wales and England, with Welsh councils facing increasing demand for urgent care and protection of vulnerable children despite experiencing an 18% reduction in their overall funding.
The Wales launch will shine a further spotlight on the pressures facing Welsh authorities, and how the 20 Options for Change Report will be taken forward by the Ministerial Advisory Group.
