First Minister praises CFW's work at Five Nations conference

Care Forum Wales - the Five Nations group

First Minister Carwyn Jones praised the work of Care Forum Wales at the Five Nations Conference hosted by CFW in Cardiff on October 17. CFW was a founder member of the group which represents the four home nations and the Republic of Ireland.

Mr Jones praised Care Forum Wales for making an invaluable contribution to improving standards in social care: “By building a strong working relationship with the Welsh Government over the last 10 years, Care Forum Wales has provided significant support for our commitment to continuous improvement in care provision in Wales.

"It is a credit to organisations like Care Forum Wales that they are able to build relationships on so many levels to work to secure the best possible future for older people in Wales. Their work is invaluable to us in the Welsh Government in helping to ensure that we hear the voices of older people.”

CFW chairman Mario Kreft said: "I think the First Minister appreciates that Care Forum Wales is taking responsibility within the Five Nations as a leading voice for change and as a force for good within in social care.

"Our 20th anniversary year [this year] is a hugely important year for Care Forum Wales and we have developed into a highly professional and influential organisation in that time.

"We have some wonderful success stories behind us and some very interesting projects which we are working on, not least the Academy of Care Practitioners."
