Social Services National Outcomes Framework – Welsh Government calls for care providers' input

The Welsh Government is inviting members of CFW to contribute to the Social Services National Outcomes Framework before it is published in final form in January 2016. 

Care homes and domiciliary care services will play a significant role in supporting people to achieve outcomes and your views are needed.

There will be two separate events where you can give your views and input:

  • November 25, 2015 in Penllergaer Business Park, Swansea
  • November 26, 2015 in Glyndŵr University, Wrexham

Book by November 5 to attend National Outcomes Framework events

There are 40 spaces available at each event and spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis by sector.

The closing date for booking is Thursday 5 November 2015. Please complete the booking form and return direct to Welsh Government if you want to attend.

Papers will be issued in advance of the workshops and will include the draft social services national outcomes framework.

Why is the Welsh Government producing a National Outcomes Framework?

The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 requires Welsh Ministers to specify outcomes to be achieved in terms of the well-being of people who need care and support and carers who need support. Welsh Ministers must report on the progress made towards the achievement of well-being.

Here's what the National Outcomes Framework aims to achieve:

  • To describe the important well-being outcomes that people should expect in order to lead fulfilled lives. This will give people a greater voice and more control over their lives and enable them to make informed decisions to ensure they engage in improving their well-being.
  • To set national direction for all services working in partnership with people to understand what matters to them and to build on people’s strengths and abilities to enable them to maintain an appropriate level of independence with the appropriate level of care and support.
  • To provide greater transparency on whether care and support services are improving well-being outcomes. This will shine a spotlight on what needs to be done to improve well-being rather than focussing on processes involved in delivering care and support
