Social Care

We support people to stay independent, and to maintain choice and control over their lives.  To do this, it is important that everyone has access to the information and advice they need to make the right choices for them. 

Some people need extra care or support to lead an active life and do the everyday things that many of us take for granted .  Our aim is to support you to maintain a good quality of life, or help you find other people who might be able to help.

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 'West Wales Population Needs Assessment' is available on the West Wales Care Partnership website.

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
