We work with and support local authorities and the independent sector who deliver social services.
We are responsible for legislation and policy, and ensuring that services are regulated and inspected. We also fund and give guidance to local authorities.
Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act comes into force in April 2016. It is the new legal framework that brings together and modernises social services law.
The Act will change the social services sector giving people more of a say over their care and support.
The law is based on the four principles of well-being, people, partnership and prevention.
Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act
The Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act was granted Royal Assent in January 2016.
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act has changed the foundation of the sector, and this sister Act will build on the success of regulation in Wales to improve the quality of care and support, and strengthen the protection of citizens.
