INTRODUCTION 1.1 Social Services is one of the largest Directorates within the Local Authority, measured by the size of the budget and the number of staff employed. The net budget for Social Services in 2010 - 2011 is £93,633,000. Social Services currently directly employ more than 2,000 staff in about 70 offices/locations. 1.2 Range of Activities The range of responsibilities covered by Social Services is wide and complex. These include: • Children who are at risk of being harmed or whose development may be impaired; • Families who are having difficulty in coping with bringing up their children;
  • • Children who do not have a family or are unable to live with their own family; • Children with disabilities or mental health problems; • Adults who need support because of: o advancing age o physical disability o learning disability o serious mental health problems • Vulnerable adults who are at risk of being abused or exploited; • People who are affected by HIV/AIDS; • People who are terminally ill; • People who are affected by the misuse of drugs or alcohol; • Social Inclusion/ Welfare Rights • Supporting People A summary of relevant legislation and guidance for Child and Family Services can be found in Appendix A. A summary of relevant legislation and guidance for Adult Services can be found in Appendix B. 1.3 Partnership working Partnership working is key to the delivery of Social Care services for both policy and practical reasons. Social Services work closely with a range of other agencies and organisations, including: • The Health Service • Education • Housing • Probation • Police • Independent Sector • Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales 1.4 Social Services and the wider Social Care economy in Swansea Social Services purchase a range of services from the independent sector, both private and not-for-profit organisations. Currently, over 40% of the Social Services budget is spent in the independent sector. Social Services has duties for the Social Care sector as a whole, and in addition to the staff it employs, there are estimated to be about another 4,000 people engaged in providing social care in Swansea.
  • 2. THE STRATEGIC CONTEXT FOR SOCIAL CARE 2.1 National Strategy for Social Care A national ten-year Strategy for Social Services in Wales was launched in February 2007, Fulfilled Lives, Supportive Communities. It outlines the role of Social Services to: • Promote social inclusion and independence • Support people at times of difficulty distress, vulnerability or illness • Protect people from harm, abuse or neglect • Act as corporate champion in local government for the most vulnerable and at-risk groups in their area The vision outlined in the Strategy is of: “Social services which are strong, accessible, and accountable, in tune with citizens’ and communities’ needs and promote social inclusion, citizens’ rights and good outcomes“. 2.2 Health Social Care and Wellbeing Strategy The Local Authority has a duty to produce a Health Social Care and Wellbeing (HSCWB) Strategy in conjunction with the Local Health Board. This is one of the four strategies that the Local Authority is required to produce. 2.3 Single Strategic Plan for Young People The Local Authority has a duty to produce a single strategic Plan for Children and Young People, aged 0-19. This is one of the four strategies that the Local Authority is required to produce. 3. REGULATION, PERFORMANCE AND INSPECTION OF SOCIAL CARE 3.1 Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) Social Care services are inspected and regulated by the CSSIW. The CSSIW came about in April 2007 through the amalgamation of two different functions, the Care Standards Inspectorate in Wales (CSIW), which regulated and inspected a range of services including residential homes, domiciliary care services, playgroups, childminders etc., and the Social Services Inspectorate which inspected the way that Local Authorities carried out their responsibilities to deliver Social Care.
  • 3.2 Regulation of individual care providers The CSSIW currently regulates and inspects individual services and agencies which are provided both by the independent sector and directly by the Local Authority e.g. residential homes, domiciliary care agencies, playgroups, childminders etc. 3.3 Inspection of the delivery of social care services by the Local Authority The CSSIW also inspects the way that Local Authorities carry out their responsibilities to deliver Social Care. The CSSIW carries out individual service reviews as well as reviews of the way that Local Authorities deliver their social care functions. 4. STRUCTURE OF SOCIAL SERVICES 4.1 Social Services are delivered through two Services, Adult Services and Child and Family Services. The overall service is the responsibility of the Corporate Director (Social Services) who is a member of the Corporate Management Team. Some activities within the Directorate are managed directly by the Corporate Director. The staffing structure for the Directorate is provided at Appendix C. 4.2 In Adult Services the key areas of activity are Assessment and Care management and directly provided services for each service area (Older People, Disabled People, Mental Health Services, Learning Disability Services). A structure chart for Adult Services is provided at Appendix D. 4.3 In the Child and Family Services the key areas of activity are Assessment and Case management and directly provided services, there is also a responsibility for the Youth offending Service. A structure chart for Child and Family Services is provided in Appendix E. 4.4 The Directorate Services include the arrangements for the COASTAL Project, Supporting People, Planning, Contracting, Social Inclusion Unit and activities such as Finance, Payments and Financial Assessments. 5. Budget 5.1 The net budget for Social Services for 2010 - 2011 is: £93,633,000. This is allocated across the Adult and Child and Family Services: • Adult Services: Older People / Younger Adults £39,676,000 Mental Health / Learning Disability £18,984,000
  • • Child and Family Services: £30,561,000 • Directorate Services £4,412,000 6. KEY ISSUES FOR SOCIAL SERVICES 6.1 There are a number of key issues for Social Services over the next couple of years. These include: • Child and Family Services – further improvement in delivery of services ensure the requirements of the CSSIW are achieved. • Review of Residential Services for Children – to implement the new arrangements that have been approved. • Older People’s Project – the reconfiguration of services for Older People to ensure that they delivered as relevantly and effectively as possible. • The restructuring of the NHS – and the effect on the delivery of health and social care services locally. • Remodelling of Health and Social Care Services in Swansea – this is part of the strategic rebalancing of services from acute to community based services that is identified through the Health, Social Care and Wellbeing Strategy. • Redevelopment of Mental Health Services in Swansea – there is a project to redevelop Mental Health Services towards a more community based delivery of support services. • Continuing Health Care – this area of activity concerns those individuals who are supported by Swansea Local Health Board. • Workforce – ensuring sufficient skills and capacity to deliver high quality social care services. 6.2 The Corporate Plan identifies the overall strategic direction that has been approved by Council and the relevant sections are attached as Appendix F.

  • APPENDIX A Summary of Relevant Legislation – Child and Family Services The Children Act 1989 The Children Act 1989 came into force on 14th October 1991 and brought together most public and private law relating to children in England and Wales. It is the primary piece of legislation governing the provision of services for children. The Act drew together legislation concerning the care and upbringing of children who were affected by a private dispute, such as divorce, and those who are in need of help from a Local Authority. It also defines ‘children in need’ (see page 3) and places a number of duties and responsibilities upon Local Authorities. The Act: • Makes children’s welfare a priority • Believes that children are best brought up within their families whenever possible • States that Local Authorities are to provide services which support children and families in need • Promotes partnership between children, parents and Local Authorities The Act also deals with children’s homes and other residential accommodation, fostering, child minding and day care for young children. The full act can be found at www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts1989/Ukpga_19890041_en_1.htm Other legislation which affects the way parts of the service operate includes: The Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000 The main purpose of this Act is to improve the life chances of young people living in and leaving Local Authority care. It placed stronger obligations on local authorities to ensure that care leavers were adequately prepared and supported. The Carers and Disabled Children Act 2000 This Act gave Local Authorities the power to offer direct payments to sixteen and seventeen year old disabled young people. The Local Authority makes the payment instead of arranging the services it has assessed the disabled young person as needing, and that young person uses the payment to secure the relevant services. The Act also provides for Local Authorities to make direct payments to people with parental responsibility for a disabled child to purchase services to meet the assessed needs of the child’s family.
  • The Adoption & Children Act 2002 The Adoption & Children Act 2002 modernised the legal framework for both domestic and inter-country adoption. Its provisions include making the needs of the child the paramount consideration, providing better adoption support services and a number of measures to encourage more potential adopters to come forward. Along with the Children’s Cases (Amendment) (Wales) Regulations 2004, the Act also led to new guidance for Independent Reviewing Officers. The role of such independent officers is seen as an important safeguard to ensure that the local authority has an appropriate, consistent and robust approach towards the corporate parenting of children. The guidance can be viewed at: http://new.wales.gov.uk/topics/childrenyoungpeople/childrenfirst/publications/indepe dantreviewingofficers?lang=en The Children Act 2004 The Children Act 2004 covers both the universal services which every child accesses, and more targeted services for those with additional needs. Its aim is to encourage integrated planning, commissioning and delivery of services as well as to improve multi-disciplinary working, remove duplication, and increase accountability. Its focus is towards outcomes that children and young people themselves have said are important, rather than prescribing organisational change. The full Act can be found at: www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2004/ukpga_20040031_en_1 The Childcare Act 2006 This Act is the first to address specifically the provision of child care and other early years activities. Responsibility for childcare provision is placed with local authorities, who are expected to work with both public bodies and private companies to improve quality and realise standards in both care and learning and to ensure that the view of parents are taken into account so that the needs of local families are reflected in the planning of new services. The full Act can be found at www.opsi.gov.uk/ACTS/acts2006/ukpga_20060021_en_1 The Stable Life Regulations 2007 These Regulations, issued by the Wales Assembly Government and contained in the document Towards a Stable Life and a Brighter Future, provide a legislative framework to strengthen the well-being of looked after children. It includes guidance on placements, education, health and case reviews, as well as strengthening the regulations for the management of children’s homes. The regulations can be viewed at http://new.wales.gov.uk/topics/childrenyoungpeople/publications/guidance/1549304 ?lang=en

  • APPENDIX F. The Health, Social Care & Well-Being Strategy 2008/11 The Health Social Care & Well-Being (HSCWB) Strategy has been agreed by the City and County of Swansea and Swansea Local Health Board. It has been developed in partnership with the Community Health Council, Swansea Council for Voluntary Services, the local NHS Trust, the National Public Health Service and Swansea University. The strategy sets out how partners aim to work with others to improve health and well being in Swansea. It adopts a twin track approach - tackling the causes of ill health and aiming to deliver effective health and social care to consistently high standards. It is the second strategy that has been developed by the partners above (known as the Health Challenge Swansea partnership). It builds upon progress made between April 2005 and March 2008. The second strategy reinforces the long term vision shared by partners, that by 2020 Swansea will be a place where: • Everyone is supported to achieve the best level of health and well being possible, living longer healthier lives. • Appropriate care is delivered in the best location at the right time by a range of organisations working together. • Communities and individuals are well informed and take responsibility for their own health and well-being. Our long term strategic aims are to: • Promote healthy lifestyles and help people to take more responsibility for their health and well being. • Reduce inequalities in health and well-being. • Improve the protection of vulnerable people. • Deliver better more accessible services. • Increase people’s independence.
  • To work towards achieving our long term vision and aims, partners have agreed to focus on three key themes over the period 2008-2011. These are: • Theme 1: To prevent ill health and reduce inequalities. • Theme 2: To deliver better more accessible services that promote independence and protect vulnerable people. • Theme 3: To develop our supporting infrastructure to support these changes. For each of these key themes, priority areas have been identified for the coming three years. Priority Areas and Key Actions 2008 / 2011 Theme 1 - Preventing ill health and reduce inequalities Socio Economic Circumstances • Income Maximisation • Economic Activity • Workplace Injuries • Transport • Community Health Development Lifestyle • Physical Activity and Nutrition • Mental Health Promotion Preventative Health and Social Care • Reducing health inequalities in children – immunisations, oral health, childhood accidents • Preventing Falls and Fractures

  • Theme 3 - Developing our supporting Infrastructure • Joining up planning, budgets and services • Information Management and Technology • Workforce Development Included in the above priorities is work to re-design our social care, mental health, and hospital and community based services. These are recognised as significant programmes in their own right. Our aims in redesigning services are to: • Develop services which meet the future social care needs of both older people and children and families in Swansea. • Ensure we have a modern mental health service fit for the 21st century. • Develop a new model of care and pattern of services for hospital and community based care.
