Saturday 03 November 2012

Addressing the Unison conference in Cardiff on Saturday, the Deputy Minister talked of the need to work as one team to deliver the best outcomes for people who need care and support, which will provide a lasting positive impact.

Gwenda Thomas said:

"It is all about achieving better lives for people who need care and support, their families and carers. Social services will touch all of us at some time, and I know it is an important issue for you.

"From the front line to my office door, we need to work as one team to deliver these changes, which will deliver a lasting positive impact for our citizens. I believe our work will stand the next generation in good stead."

The Deputy Minister thanked the gathered audience for their contributions to improving the lives of people who need care and support.  

She added:

"Vital work is done by front line staff to ensure people have opportunities to lead fulfilled lives. I place a high value on that care and commitment which is integral to making sure people are safe, happy, healthy and have opportunities to contribute to society.

"I do understand the challenges of collaboration and integration. It takes resources, time, energy, commitment. However, if we remain mindful of what we have in common, rather than our differences, I believe we can find a way forward which promotes vibrant creative services to help people who need care and support live better lives in supportive communities."
