The AWHoCS group consists of heads of children’s services from all local authorities across Wales and meets on a quarterly basis.

As one of our key groups, it is responsible for leading on all aspects of children’s services, formulating the ADSS Cymru responses to policy consultations and articulating the voice of those local authority professional leaders who deliver care and support to children and families across Wales.

For the foreseeable future, the work of AWHoCS will be aligned to the work of the Welsh Government’s Ministerial Advisory Group on Improving Outcomes for Children, as the programme is key to AWHoCS and its partners. This important work is scheduled to run for the 2016 – 2021 Assembly term with a variety of workstreams that AWHoCS members will engage with.
