What Is the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Bill
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 changed the foundation of the social care sector. The Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Bill is the next step in making social services in Wales sustainable.
What the Bill aims to do – The Bill builds on the success of regulation in Wales and reflects the changing world of social care. It will place service quality and improvement at the heart of the regulatory regime and strengthen protection for those who need it. Regulation will move beyond compliance with minimum standards, and focus more on the quality of services and the impact which they have on people receiving them.
