Domiciliary care workers in Wales to be registered from 2020

The Welsh Government has announced that, from 2020, all domiciliary care workers in Wales will need to be registered before they can work in the social care sector. Adult residential care workers will follow in 2022.

The new registration arrangements are in the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Bill, currently before the National Assembly. Assuming this becomes law, the regs will come into force in April 2017.
