Ceredigion CC is serving most adults with a learning disability well and has promising prospects for further improvement, according to a report published by the Social Services Inspectorate for Wales.

The inspection examined the way the council assesses people's social care needs and provides services, including day services, specialist accommodation, respite care, home support, and direct payments to enable some people to organise their own care. The council has accepted the report's recommendations for further improvements in services.

Inspectors were impressed with the effectiveness of multi-disciplinary working, the good knowledge of people and communities demonstrated by staff and the respect and sensitivity shown to people with learning disabilities and their family carers.

The council has also made significant progress with managing and improving performance since its joint review in late 2000.

To progress further, the council will need to improve its strategic planning and commissioning, partnerships with service users, sharpen practice in relation to reviews of care plans and develop further its joint work with health.

Jane Hutt, minister for health and social services, said: 'This report demonstrates real progress since the authority's joint review.

'It is encouraging to see the generally positive comments from service users and carers referred to in the report. The challenge for the authority is to now move on and make further improvements that build on this success.'

Graham Williams, chief social services inspector, said: 'This report is one of a series about social services for people with learning disabilities.

'Our inspectors provide an objective assessment of local social services and have concluded that Ceredigion is providing good services to support people in the community and help them live more independently.'
