Code of Professional Practice for Social Care Workers in Wales
Posted: 11 April 2017
The Code tells all social care professionals what they must do and how to behave so that they all work to the same high standards.
If you’re receiving care or support from a social care worker, the Code will also help you understand how they should behave towards you - and how their employers should help them provide the best of care.
If you are a social care worker or employer, the Code empowers you to put the well-being of individuals at the centre of decisions about their care and support and gives practical guidance on how to meet the objectives of the Welsh Government’s Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act.
It is relevant to the whole social care workforce, whether registered with the Care Council, or not. Source: Care Council for Wales.
