We have today published a letter summarising the findings of our November 2021 monitoring activity undertaken in Wrexham social services for children
The intention of monitoring activity is to provide assurance that Wrexham social services remains on a positive journey of improvement.
In November, we undertook monitoring of Wrexham CBC children’s social services to follow up on the findings of our inspection in October 2020 in which we found services remained inadequate with early indicators of improvement. That means services were consistently failing to meet statutory duties but children were not found to be unsupported or at immediate risk of harm or abuse.
Today’s publication is part of our ongoing monitoring of Wrexham CBC, and follows on from our review in April 2021.
From the evidence gathered during these reviews, it is our judgement that Wrexham CBC children’s social services is continuing to make improvements.
We have drawn the attention of the local authority to our findings. We will monitor progress through on-going performance evaluation activity. It is our intention to undertake a further follow up inspection in 2022.
