'Serious concern' over children's services

Children's services in Neath Port Talbot are failing to protect vulnerable people and failing to meet statutory requirements according to the body charged with inspecting them.

I am concerned about the lack of progress, despite the dedication and hard work of front line staff, in addressing the significant problems we have identified.

I have met with the Chief Executive and he understands that there needs to be a step change in the performance of children’s social services and that he needs to ensure that all of the necessary actions are taken to rapidly improve these services.

– Imelda Richardson, Chief Inspector
