SCIE consultation response: A strategy for social services in Wales over the next decade (WAG)

Published: December 2006

SCIE welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Welsh Assembly Government's proposals on their strategy for social services in Wales over the next decade. Many aspects of the proposals reflect SCIE's own priorities and the principles that we are determined should drive social services provision.

In our response we have focused on the foreword and chapters 1 to 4. We have highlighted areas of SCIE's ongoing or completed work that lend support for the direction that the Assembly proposes to take over the next decade. There are many lessons from our work that are relevant to share and that we believe can inform the strategy and help the Assembly to take it forward.

We would be delighted to work with the Welsh Assembly in the development of their social services strategy or to expand on any of the points we have highlighted below.
