Original consultation

We are seeking your views on workforce aspects within phase 2 of implementation of the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act 2016.

Consultation description

The act establishes a new system of regulation and inspection which upholds the rights of Welsh citizens to dignified, safe and appropriate care and support.

We are consulting on proposals that support recruitment, retention and working practices in the domiciliary care sector, in order to help it deliver the best possible quality of care.    

The draft regulations:

  • require providers of domiciliary support services to distinguish between travel time and care time 
  • provide domiciliary care staff with an alternative to zero-hours contracts. 

The consultation also seeks your views on:

  • opening the register of social care workers to those employed in regulated domiciliary support services from 2018
  • how we may address current challenges in the recruitment and retention of trained social care managers.

We are holding information events: 

  • Cardiff - 21 June 2017 
  • Wrexham - 13 July 2017 

To attend contact RISCAct2016@wales.gsi.gov.uk by 19 June (Cardiff event) or 30 June (Wrexham event). Spaces are limited and subject to availability.
