DW & WACDS respond to Social Services Act consultation

Disability Wales and the Wales Alliance for Citizen Directed Support Provider Network have submitted a joint response to the Welsh Government’s consultation on the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act Regulations and Code of Practice (Part 3 – assessment and Part 4 – meeting needs).

The consultation response can be accessed by clicking here.

In response to Question 13 we made a strong case for the Welsh Government to re-consider its marginalisation in the Act of the Social Model of Disability, Independent Living and the UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled People.

We hope that the revised drafts will take account of our concerns.

If you would like to feed back anything about the consultation to us, please email Paul Swann (Policy Officer, Independent Living) atpaul.swann@disabilitywales.org or call the office on 02920 887325.
