We are working with our partners to transform social services in Wales.

We want to give people a stronger voice and greater control over their lives. We want to make sure that they get the care and support they need to lead fulfilled lives.

3 groups have been set up to tackle problems and come up with solutions and ideas.

Partnership Forum

This is chaired by Gwenda Thomas.  It brings together political leaders from local government, health, the voluntary and private sectors and the Care Council for Wales.

Leadership Group

This group is chaired by the Director of Social Services and Integration. It brings together professional leaders of social services in Wales. This includes local government, health, the voluntary and private sectors and the regulators.

Meetings are held quarterly, where members measure progress and take forward actions to deliver change.

National Social Services Citizen Panel for Wales

The citizen panel meets regularly to discuss important issues and action to be taken.

Panel members were recruited to give a wide range of perspectives, and to offer their expertise and experience. This is one way the voices of people who use social services and carers will be heard clearly.

Members will contribute to the work of the National Partnership Forum, having their say in the decisions made by those leading this work throughout Wales.

The Resources show how the panel was set up, what it does and how it works. They explain why it is important to work with citizens at a leadership level.  
They may be useful if you are setting up national or regional citizen panels.  Further resources will be added.
