THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will examine the priorities for social services in Wales - including implementing recent legislation, practical challenges and key future issues for policymakers.
It comes as the Welsh Government prepares to introduce reforms to improve the integration and delivery of social services at a regional, rather than local authority level, following its consultation on the local government White Paper.
It will also be an opportunity to consider the initial impact of the Social Services and Wellbeing Act and Regulation and Inspection of Social Care Act, which introduced regional partnership boards and pooled budgets for health and social care.
Further sessions will focus on the practical challenges of reforming social services, including establishing effective and accountable governance arrangements, improving the financial and workforce resilience of services, increasing efficiency and delivering reforms without disrupting frontline services.
