Changes to Welsh social services in 2016

The Welsh Assembly Government has announced that major transformations of social services in Wales will be brought in from April 2016.

The recently passed Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 introduces “a strong statutory framework for the protection of adults and has provided for strong national leadership arrangements for safeguarding people. It will also ensure people have access to clear information, advice and assistance and will place their voice and rights at the centre of decisions about their care and support.”
