The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act came into force on 6 April 2016. It is the new law for improving the well-being of people who need care and support, and carers who need support.

Cost: This course is free of charge.

The Act changes the way people’s needs are assessed and the way services are delivered - people will have more of a say in the care and support they receive. The Act has significant implications for third sector organisations – come along to this information session to find out more.
