The annual review of local authority performance across Wales shows that services provided by Ceredigion County Council continue to improve.

Published last week, Performance Data for National Strategic Indicators and Public Accountability measures released by the Welsh Government shows performance over a range of services in Ceredigion to be improving.

For eight of out of 43 indicators used for comparison, Ceredigion was ranked best in Wales and in the top two for a quarter of the measures. For 25 of the measures Ceredigion’s performance improved compared to 2012-13. With a drop in performance for 13 of them.

The data showed that all Special Education Needs pupils were issued with a final statement of needs within the prescribed 26 week period, and attendance in Ceredigion secondary schools is the best in Wales with attendance in Primary Schools being joint first.

There was a reduction in the proportion of adults who experienced delayed transfer of care for social care reasons, and a higher proportion of vulnerable adults being cared for in the community.
