The White Paper, Sustainable Social Services for Wales:

A Framework for Action, published in 2011, highlighted a number of challenges faced by public services in Wales. These included demographic changes, increased expectations from those who access care and support as well as continuing hard economic realities.

The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act received Royal Assent and became law on 1 May 2014. It came into force on 6 April 2016.

The Act provides the legal framework for improving the well-being of people who need care and support, and carers who need support, and for transforming social services in Wales.
