Am I entitled to services?
If you are an adult with social care needs that might affect your health, safety or independence, you may need extra support. We have a duty to assess your needs and ensure they are met in a way that best suits you.
The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act is a law that gives you more of a say in the care and support you receive. It places a greater emphasis on promoting people’s independence to give them a stronger voice and control.
The assessment process for care and support is based on what matters to you. It considers personal strengths, support available from family members, friends and others in the community.
