What we do
As partners we share a commitment to ensuring health and social care services work well together for the benefit of those that need them and their carers. The Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 places new requirements on all organizations that commission and provide care. The West Wales Care Partnership is working together to respond to those requirements, improving services and joining them up as far as possible so they deliver the best outcomes for our citizens.
Our Priorities The Regional Partnership Board has identified a number of strategic priorities that it wants to take forward over the coming year to 18 months. Pace setter agencies have been identified within the partnership to lead on each area for the region.
One of the most important principles of safeguarding is that it is everyone’s responsibility. Each professional and organisation must do everything they can, to ensure that children and adults at risk are protected from abuse. Regional safeguarding boards for adults and children in the West Wales and Powys areas (Cwmpas and Cysur) have been established to support the development of shared standards and to facilitate learning across organisations. More information is available on their website at http://cysur.wales/home/about-us/
The Welsh Government’s Intermediate Care Fund will provide nearly £8 million to partners in the West Wales region to reduce the numbers of older people, people with learning disabilities and children with complex of needs requiring institutional care and help them live independently in or near their home. We have an innovative programme of change in place to help us achieve this.
