Social Care Charges (Wales) Measure 2010

Section 15 – Amendment to the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970

33.This section amends the Local Authority Social Services Act 1970.  The 1970 Act makes provision concerning the exercise of social services functions, including a requirement that Welsh local authorities in exercising their social services functions comply with guidance and directions issued by the Welsh Ministers.  For the purposes of the 1970 Act social services functions are those functions under enactments specified in Schedule 1 to the Act.  Section 15 adds specified sections of this Measure to that list of enactments in Schedule 1, and in so doing makes charging for local authority welfare services a social services function for the purposes of the 1970 Act.
