How will this affect my care and support?
To support you to achieve well-being, you will make decisions about your care in partnership with professionals.
Carers will have an equal right to be assessed for support, to those that they care for, and more people will beentitled to Direct Payments.
A new assessment process for care and support will be based on what matters to you as an individual.
The assessment will be simpler and can be carried out by one person on behalf of a range of organisations.
There will be more services to prevent problems getting worse, so the right help is available when you need it.
Stronger powers to keep people safe from abuse or neglect will also be introduced.
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act comes into force in April 2016.
