Welsh Government launches consultation and information events on workforce issues 12/06/2017

The Welsh Government has announced plans to require providers of domiciliary support services to distinguish between travel time and care time in careworkers' schedules, and offer domiciliary care staff on zero hours contracts the choice to move to a minimum hours contract after three months of continued employment, if there is continued demand for the work. The consultation also asks for views on opening the register of social care workers to those employed in regulated domiciliary support services from 2018 and how the Welsh Government can address current challenges in the recruitment and retention of trained social care managers.

The Welsh Government is holding information events on Cardiff - 21 June 2017 and Wrexham - 13 July 2017. To attend please contact by 19 June (Cardiff event) or 30 June (Wrexham event). Spaces are limited and subject to availability. 

The deadline to respond to the consultation is 7 August 2017. UKHCA members are invited to send their views to so we can take these into account when preparing a response on behalf of members.
