Consultation on the Review of the Code of Practice for Social Care Workers

The Care Council for Wales is consulting on revised standards for practitioners working in social care.

The Code of Practice for Social Care Workers sets out the standards all practitioners should work to and what is expected of them by individuals who use services, the public and employers.

The Code is particularly significant for anyone who has to register with the Care Council, as it is taken into account when there are doubts over a person's fitness to practise as a result of allegations about their conduct.

The consultation seeks your views on a refreshed version of the Code that was originally published in 2002.

Please note: The existing Code of Practice remains in place and it is expected that the revised Code will be available in 2015.
