"I worked for many years in early year’s settings and after retiring started volunteering. I saw the positive effect of a CSSIW inspection due to the changes in inspection.
I wanted to ensure child care inspections continued to have an impact on children’s experiences in their early years, but also having a son with Angelman Syndrome it is important to me how Welsh Government Acts are turned into practice. The ethos of the Social Services and Well-being Act is wonderful but how can we ensure its philosophy is turned into practice in local areas? I feel CSSIW has a major role in ensuring policy is translated into better and more fulfilled lives of people dependent on services."
