Social Services & Well-being (Wales) Act comes into force today (April 6)

The Act is designed to improve the well-being of people who need care and support, and carers who need support.

What does this mean for me?

The Act changes the way people’s needs are assessed and the way services are delivered, so that people will have more of a say in the care and support they receive.

It also promotes a range of help in the community to reduce the need for formal, planned support.

What happens now?

If you receive care or support, you will take part in the new process during your next scheduled review date. Your local authority will be able to provide more information.

You can access the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act on the legislation.gov website. (External link)
