Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014

Section 183 – Publicising advocacy services in care homes

456.Access to an advocate is considered to be particularly important for people who fund their own care in a care home, as they may not be supported by a social worker or have contact with other services provided by a local authority. Section 183 amends section 22 of the Care Standards Act 2000 to provide suitable safeguards in this regard. This is done by providing the Welsh Ministers with powers to place an obligation by way of regulations on registered providers and managers of care homes in Wales to make arrangements for persons accommodated within such establishments to be made aware of any advocacy services that may be available to them under section 181 of this Act.
