Care Council launches five-year home-care strategy

The Care Council has launched its Care & Support at Home Needs to Improve five-year strategy in Cardiff this month.

The five-year plan, developed by the Care Council for Wales in partnership with local authorities and the social care, health and housing sectors, aims to improve care and support at home and address current concerns with the system. It recognises that change can only be achieved in collaboration.

Our vice-chair, Malcolm Perrett, spoke at the launch (pictured). Responding to the minister, he said: “I welcome the six visions highlighted in the new care at home strategy, but it is simplistic to say to providers that they have to give guaranteed contracts to workers and that this must come from the other end in commissioning services.”

Sue Evans responded: "Social Care Wales will not shy away from difficult conversations and undertook to take what Malcolm said about providers seriously.”
