The Care Council for Wales will begin the process of registering social care workers in Wales in autumn 2004 with residential child care managers being the first to be invited to register, health and social services minister Jane Hutt announced today.

The social care register is an important part of the work being taken forward by the Care Council for Wales to raise standards and improve the protection of vulnerable people

Ms Hutt said: 'In the first instance I have asked the Care Council for Wales to focus on managers and staff working in direct care roles in children's homes, adult care homes and domicilary care. I want to give priority to those working in residential child care settings and we aim to invite those staff to register from autumn 2004.

'The programme proposed by the Care Council for Wales provides a framework within which we can advance our objectives for raising standards and protecting vulnerable people and of putting social care staff on a more professional footing. It is a challenging but achievable timetable and takes proper account of the need to work in partnership with employers and employees. I know that the sector in Wales will welcome these developments.'

Note

Residential child care managers will be invited to register with the council from September 2004, residential child care workers from April 2005, residential adult care managers from April 2005, residential adult care workers from September 2005, domicilary care managers from April 2005 and domicilary care workers from September 2006.

The Care Council for Wales will consult with stakeholders on the registration and conduct rules.
