Government announces new Social Care Wales board

The Welsh Government has announced a new board responsible for improving social care in Wales.

Social Care Wales will bring together the Care Council for Wales and the Social Services Improvement Agency and be responsible for leading and supporting social care. The changes will take place on April 3 as part of the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act 2016.

The Minister for Social Services and Public Health Rebecca Evans announced last week that the board will be chaired by Arwel Ellis Owen, who is the currently the Chair of the Care Council for Wales board. The other members will be: Abigail Harris, Aled Roberts, Carl Cooper, Damian Bridgeman, Donna Hutton, Emma Britton, Grace Quantock, Joanne Kember, Jane Moore, Kate Hawkins, Peter Max, Rhian Watcyn Jones, and Simon Burch.

The minister said: “Social Care Wales will be a dynamic and powerful body. It will take on new responsibilities for driving improvement across our social care sector, as well as retaining existing responsibilities for regulating and developing the workforce."
