Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act: assessment and support for carers

Leaflet outlining local authorities’ duties and functions in relation to the assessment and support of carers under the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act. The Act consolidates the law relating to carers and gives them equivalent rights to those of the people that they care for. The leaflet briefly covers the provision of Information, Advice and Assistance services; proportionate assessment; supporting carers through community based preventative services; carer support plans; and what happens if the carer and the person cared for move from one authority area in Wales to another.
