Here are some of the great comments that we received following from Pembrokeshire Social Services’ latest CIW inspection:
'Practitioners we spoke with were positive about the support they received from management. The local authority demonstrated a commitment to learning and development and supporting formal qualification. This is significant, notably in supporting a number of newly qualified staff in the local authority and promoting a shared understanding across teams and other agencies.'
'We found strength in partnership arrangements between statutory and preventative services.'
'People of Pembrokeshire can be assured their safety and well-being is promoted. Referrals and safeguarding practices were managed in accordance with statutory requirements and in an appropriate and timely manner'
'The local authority recognised supporting the well-being of its workforce is business critical and it has a clear focus on recruitment, retention and workforce development. All staff benefit from the opportunity to develop their knowledge, skills and careers. The local authority is ambitious to ensure people living in Pembrokeshire benefit from longer-term and trusting relationships with skilled and supportive social workers who understand their needs and how best to work with them to reduce risk and improve their personal outcomes'
