Know your rights!
Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014
Carers undertake a voluntarily role and now have the same legal rights and privileges as those they care for.
The definition of a ‘carer’: ‘a person who provides or intends to provide care for an adult or disabled child.’
New duties have also been introduced by the SSWA 2014. The act applies to adults, children and to carers.
The Local Authority are required to offer assessments and services to meet the needs of carers, if the person ‘may’ have a need for care and/or support.
