CSSIW appoint new chief inspector

The Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales has appointed a new chief inspector to take over from Imelda Richardson, who is due to retire at the end of September.

Gillian Baranski, who is currently the chief executive at the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) Cymru, will take over the position on October 10.

Chief inspector Imelda Richardson said: "I would like to warmly welcome Gillian to CSSIW in her new role as chief inspector and look forward to continued success for the organisation in the coming years.

"She is taking on an organisation where staff and partners work together with citizens, service providers, sector organisations and other inspectorates to jointly improve care services. 

"It has been a privilege to work with and alongside such committed people and professionals at all levels."
