Developing resources for social workers and practitioners.
The culture of social care in Wales is changing following The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act (2014). The Act gives carers living in Wales the same legal rights and entitlements as those they care for and means assessments are carried out to help promote well-being.
Social Care Wales is a regulatory and workforce body, sponsored by the Welsh Government, whose mission is to make a positive difference to social care in Wales by enabling skills and responding to reform. The Institute of Public Care (IPC) at Oxford Brookes won a competitive tender from Social Care Wales to research and develop resources to help social workers and related professionals embrace change and achieve best practice in carers’ assessments.
