Annual Council Reporting Framework (ACRF)
As part of the Annual Council Reporting Framework (introduced by the Welsh Government in 2009), all Local Authorities across Wales are required to publish an Annual Report on the effectiveness of their Social Care Services. The Chief Officer for Social Services (in their role as Statutory Director of Social Services) is responsible for producing the Annual Report, which is intended to inform local citizens, service users and all key stakeholders of performance and achievements over the last year (based on evidence gathered) and key priorities for further improvement.
What information will I find in the Report?
The Report contains information on the following strategic service areas: Safeguarding; Adult Social Services; Children’s Social Services and Support Services. This includes:

The Report and supporting evidence has been shared with the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW).
