Minister launches new consultation into social care act

Minister for social services and public health Rebecca Evans has launched a new consultation into staffing in the sector as part of phase 2 of the implementation of the Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Act 2016.

This consultation, which will run for eight weeks, builds on last year’s consultation concerning domiciliary care in Wales and addresses issues around recruitment and working practices.

According to the minister, the consultation tackles issues such as zero hours contracts and the amount of time spent delivering care and support. It will also look at the retention of managers within the care sector.

The government will be holding two information events about the consultation – one in Cardiff on June 21 and the other in Wrexham on July 13. To register for these events, email
