Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Bill
The draft Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Bill was introduced in to the National Assembly for Wales on 28th January 2013 for consideration and scrutiny.
If legislation is passed, it will provide the legal framework for improving the well-being of people who need care and support or support and to transform social services in Wales.
Why do we need the Bill?
The White Paper Sustainable Social Services for Wales: A Framework for Action highlighted a number of challenges faced by public services in Wales.
These included demographic changes, increased expectations from those who access care and support as well as continuing hard economic realities.
The Bill aims to address these issues and in doing so will give people greater freedom to decide which services they need while offering consistent, high-quality services across the country.
What will the Bill do?
The Bill will transform the way social services are delivered, promoting people’s independence to give them stronger voice and control.
Integration and simplification of the law will also provide greater consistency and clarity to:
- people who use social services,
- their carers,
- local authority staff and their partner organisations,
- the courts and the judiciary.
The Bill will promote equality, improve the quality of services and the provision of information people receive. It will also encourage a renewed focus on prevention and early intervention.
