This pack, with its accompanying presentation, introduces the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act and raises awareness of what it means for those working in social care. It draws on a range of materials developed across Wales and is designed to support the delivery of a two to three-hour workshop. It aims to provide an overview of the Act, pave the way for implementing the legislation and establish a foundation for more in-depth and specialist training that people might need.
It will help raise awareness of the background to the Act and its different parts and features. It will also provide an appreciation of key differences in the future emphasis of care and support, as well as identifying changes to practice and any additional training that might be needed. The pack is provided in PDF and Word versions, for ease of use.
