A recruitment campaign has begun for a new Social Services Citizen Panel made up of adults, young people and children who use social services, who are carers or who have an interest in social services in Wales and are able to work at a strategic level.
For two years, the group will meet regularly to discuss changes and developments in the social care sector. Their views and decisions will feed in to the strategic leadership work of the Deputy Minister’s National Social Services Partnership Forum, giving people greater voice and more control over the services they receive.
The panel will contribute to the development of social care policy and its delivery at an important time in the radical transformation to make services in Wales sustainable.
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Bill is at stage one of the National Assembly for Wales’ scrutiny process and it will be the legal framework underpinning these major changes.
