Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW)

The Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) encourages the improvement of social care, early years and social services by:

  • Regulating, inspecting and reviewing
  • Providing professional advice

Through out work we aim to raise standards, improve quality and promote best practice and inform people about social care.

Our National teams lead on managing and analysing information to deliver all-Wales reviews and provide professional advice to improve services. The three regions (North, South East, South West) are the focus for professional assessment and judgement about services and organisations. They inspect and review local authority social services, and regulate and inspect care settings and agencies.
