Part 9 of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 requires local authorities to make arrangements to promote co-operation with their relevant partners and others, in relation to adults with needs for care and support, carers and children.


The purpose of Part 9 is to improve the outcomes and well-being of people, as well as improving the efficiency  and effectiveness of service delivery. The key aims are to:


  • improve care and support, ensuring people have more say and control;
  • improve outcomes and health and well-being;
  • provide co-ordinated, person centred care and support;
  • make more effective use of resources, skills and expertise.
