Social Services Act one year on – minister issues statement

One year after the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act came into force, minister for social services and public health Rebecca Evans has made a statement in the Senedd outlining the changes which have taken place.

In the statement, the minister said that "people have a stronger voice in improving their well-being and deciding what support they need to help them to live independently".

"Care is being co-ordinated with the person at the centre – recognising that they and their family know the situation best – they live it every day," she continues.

The statement goes on to praise the work of the seven regional partnership boards and says that "the citizen voice is increasingly present in the decision-making process".
