New social services legislation to come into force at midnight, 05/04/16 [W]

The new Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 will come into force at midnight.

Under the new Act:

  • People will have a voice in how social services assess and meet their needs
  • Individuals will have access to the right support services at the right time
  • Carers will have greater rights
  • Powers will be strengthened to safeguard vulnerable children
