WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT

The Welsh Government has changed the law that governs the way social services protect people from abuse and neglect and help people to lead fulfilled lives and achieve wellbeing.

A population assessment is an exercise undertaken by social services and the health boards working through a joint committee that operate in their area to gather information on wellbeing and the barriers to achieving wellbeing for people who need care and support and their carers.

The population assessment will consider what could prevent people from needing care and support in the first place, or things that could be done to prevent the need for care and support from increasing.

The Western Bay population assessment consists of three layers:

– A suite of web-pages providing a high level summary of care and support needs, services and key issues for the Western Bay area

– A suite of downloadable Chapters/ PDFs providing a more detailed description of arrangements

– A suite of Technical Reports/Topic Papers containing the evidence and analysis that the two other products are based on (these are available on request – see ‘Contact’ section)
