Regulation and Inspection of Social Care (Wales) Bill: Stage 1


April 2015



My Home Life Cymru (MHLC)


The response from Age Cymru to the Bill consultation encapsulates the points that are within the My Home Life agenda. Therefore, this paper will not add to the Age Cymru response but will offer some background information on the MHLC programme in relation to the Bill.


Since its beginning in late 2008, MHLC has been working to influence policy and practice in Wales in regard to the quality of life of those living, dying, visiting and working in care homes for older people in Wales.


As well as working with care providers, MHLC has sought to work at all levels and with all stakeholders to influence policy and practice. In regard to the content of the Bill, this work includes:


·         Producing a Regional Quality Framework for the Western Bay Collaboration for use across the region with care homes

·         Being a member of CSSIW’s Quality Judgement Framework Development Group

·         Advising CSSIW on its ‘Independent Visitors’ pilot scheme

·         Being a member of various sub groups of Welsh Assembly Government’s Care Homes Group
