A Social Co-ops Development Forum for Wales has been established to bring together all those working to develop co-operatives in the field of social care. This is particularly important at this time as the Social Services & Wellbeing Bill has just been published, and it places emphasis on the role multi-stakeholder co-operatives can play in providing quality social care.
The Social Co-ops Development Forum is Chaired by Adrian Roper, Chief Executive of Cartrefi Cymru, and meets on a regular basis. Adrian has produced a useful presentation on the Social Care Bill. Download his presentation:- Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Bill
The Forum is currently concentrating on work in Mid Wales, and is working to develop a Mid Wales Social Co-op
The next meetings are on Tuesday April 1st and Tuesday April 29th at 3.00pm at Cartrefi Cymru, Unit 27 Ddole Enterprise Park, Ddole Road, Llandrindod Wells, Powys, LDS1 6DF
They will concentrate on developing a Social Co-op in Mid Wales, and are supported by the Co-operative Enterprise Hub
