Take part in first point of contact assessment under the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014

Date published: 04/10/2018

Annually, the Wales Audit Office undertakes a programme of Improvement Studies and Local Government logoNational Studies. These are studies that help public bodies manage the financial challenges they face by providing authoritative, unbiased, evidence-based analysis and advice.

For 2018-19 they are delivering a study on First point of contact assessments under the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.

As part of this work they will focus on the following areas:

  • the comprehensiveness of the assessments;
  • whether the assessment is person-centred including ease of access;
  • whether the assessment process is leading to a shift towards prevention in social care and non-social care services; and
  • the impact of assessments on people’s wellbeing and interaction with the requirement of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act 2015.

The third sector has a crucial role to play in terms of social care needs assessments and it is vital they hear your views as part of their study. To do this, they have developed a questionnaire to find out your views on these assessments across Wales.

They request that you complete and submit your response by 31 December 2018.

They understand the demands they are placing on you by asking for this information but they believe the investment of your time will allow them to deliver a better quality output which will benefit public bodies, and ultimately, the citizens of Wales.
