General description

The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 introduced a new performance measurement framework for local authorities in relation to their social services functions. The statutory performance measures detailed in the framework replace all existing performance measures for local authority social services required by Welsh Government, including the social services performance indicators under the National Strategic Indicator (NSI) set.

Data collection and calculation

While extensive efforts have been made to gather reliable and accurate information from local authorities, 2016-17 and 2017-18 data remains imperfect. Not all local authorities have been able to provide fully completed returns, due to issues with implementing or preparing for the new Welsh Community Care Information System (WCCIS) computer system.

For this reason, data at a ‘Wales level’ has only been published.
