The Welsh Government want your views to changes to the regulation and inspection of social care services and the social care workforce in Wales.

The purpose of the consultation is to consider draft proposals which include:

  • mandatory registration of domiciliary care workers
  • opening the workforce register on a voluntary basis to social care workers
  • changing the way that Care Inspectorate Wales decides whether a person is fit and proper to be a service provider

Please find the consultation document and the associated documents on the Welsh Government website.

Please send feedback and comments by 5pm on Wednesday, 2nd October 2019 via email to
