Member in charge: Gwenda Thomas AM - Deputy Minister for Social Services

Date of introduction: 25 January 2010

Date of Royal Approval: 10 November 2010

This Measure places a new requirement on the NHS and Local Authorities in Wales to work in partnership to prepare, publish and implement a joint strategy in relation to carers. The Welsh Government’s intention is that this Measure will fill the gaps in service provision that currently exist by providing a new statutory framework. In particular, the Measure makes provisions to ensure that:

  • Carers have the right information at the right time to support them in their caring role; and that
  • Statutory agencies properly engage with carers as partners in the provision of care involving them at all levels in the assessment, delivery and evaluation of care arrangements.
