Improving Our Service - Invitation to a Discussion Group on 14th May

Improving Our Service

Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council are looking for a group of people who receive (or care for someone who receives) care and support from Social Services in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, to take part in discussion groups to help us improve our service. 

We want them to tell us what they think about the care and support they have received and to share their ideas about how we can make things better. 

Every year we publish a report that tells people what we have done in Social Services and how we have performed. We would like to know what you think about it and if you agree with what we are saying. Our report also sets out our priorities for the coming year, and we want you to tell us if you agree with what we think is important. 

The discussion group will take place on the morning of the 14th May. An organisation called Tempo will be helping us with the workshop, and as a thank you for taking part, you will be given Time Credits. 

How do I get involved?

If you would like to take part in our discussion groups, please respond by e-mail before days end of  8th May 2019 to:
