This directorate is home to all of teams that work with people in the Vale who need support, care or protection.
This includes children and their families, older people and adults or children with an illness or disability.
Our social services team works to safeguard the well-being of children and young people who are in need either within their families, or where this is not possible by providing good quality alternative care.
The directorate also provides support for adults who need help to live their lives as independently as possible. This support is provided on both a short term and more permanent basis.
