About us

The West Wales Care Partnership (WWCP) has been established to oversee the continued transformation and integration of health, social care and wellbeing services in the West Wales area. The Partnership brings together the three local authorities in West Wales (Carmarthenshire County Council, Ceredigion Council and Pembrokeshire County Council), Hywel Dda University Health Board and representatives of the third and independent sector. A Regional Partnership Board has been established to meet the requirements of the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014. Users of care and support services also sit on the Board, along with a carer representative.

Assessing the need for care and support in West Wales

Section 14 of the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 requires local authorities and Local Health Boards to produce Population Assessments which identify the need for care and support and support needs for carers in their area, the range of services required, how far these needs are being met and how services will be delivered in Welsh. Population Assessments must be carried out every five years.

The West Wales Care Partnership, which brings together partners from Carmarthenshire Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire County Councils, Hywel Dda University Health Board, third and independent sector organisations and users and carers, has published its first Population Assessment for the region. The Assessment is available below.

Further information on the West Wales Care Partnership is available at www.wwcp.org.uk. For further information on the Population Assessment and how the Partnership will use its findings to improve care and support in the future, please contact Martyn Palfreman, Head of Regional Collaboration at MJPalfreman@carmarthenshire.gov.uk
