Having dealt with social services in Powys many times over the last 13 or so months I can really understand how this has happened. I wonder if Ali Bulman really understands or even knows how poor many of her members of staff are? Whilst dealing with the issues I had, which ultimately were steamrollered through against me by Powys County Council I was lied to brazenly, spoken to really badly and some members of staff were simply rude or obnoxious. The reports generated were often factually incorrect, were 9 times out of 10 late or incomplete, and then these reports were rehashed or cut n pasted by subsequent social workers so the errors were replicated along the lines. Even the spelling was atrocious and the name of the child they were supposed to be looking after spelt incorrectly!!! The District Judge even criticised the performance (not) shown along the way. And yet as I met others in the same boat they relayed exactly the same experience in their cases. How can a people focused service be so poor in execution? The staff were often aggressive and showed little empathy. They were rigid and inflexible and believed one side all the time even after realising that this side had lied because they wanted to keep face. If you then add in that they put pressure on other services like education to keep along with this deceit it really shows a service that is not fit for purpose

I’d welcome Ali Bulman to contact me, in fact I’d love to hear from her. It’s not going to happen because she will be scared with what I say about her performance, because as head of a service the buck stops with her…

Oh and Ali – your staff have my contact details. They just fail to actually use them to help themselves. Oh and you *may* want to get them to understand GDPR as well as they have broken it numerous times towards me…
I was often able to hear details about other “clients” whilst on the phone for example…
