Important Changes to Practice Guidance for Social Care Managers

The Care Council is inviting social care managers to comment on proposed changed to The Social Care Manager: Practice Guidance for Social Care Managers registered with the Care Council for Wales.First published in 2013, The Social Care Manager is an important document which builds on the Code of Practice, describes what is expected of social care managers and is intended as a practical tool, aiding managers in their practice.

If there are concerns about a manager’s fitness to practise, practice guidance may also be used to illustrate a failure to meet the standards in the Code. Serious or persistent failure to follow practice guidance may therefore put a manager’s registration at risk.

In accordance with our requirements, we conduct an annual review of the practice guidance to ensure it remains current and fit for purpose. As a result of this year’s review, we intend to make a small number of changes and additions as described below.

Please submit your comment on the proposed changes by Friday 27 February through emailing

We will take your views into account before finalising the changes and publishing revised practice guidance in the next few months.

We will notify you when revised practice guidance is published. In the meantime, please continue to refer to the current document:
