Track the Act Survey with Carers Wales

Carers Wales are committed to making life better for carers and as part of that commitment they have launched a new version of ‘Track the Act’ – this is a survey aimed at Carers, designed to give them the opportunity to share their views and experiences around the Carers Needs Assessment, which will then feed back to the 22 local authorities in Wales and the Welsh Government.

This questionnaire is for unpaid carers to give their views on the rights they have received under the Social Services and Well-Being (Wales) Act 2014 (the Act). A carer defined under the Act is someone who provides or intends to provide care for a friend or family member.

The Act places various duties on councils. In particular:

Since the Act was introduced Carers Wales, through this questionnaire, has gathered your experiences in an attempt to understand whether progress is being made. We have analysed and used your responses from the last 3 years to write briefings and have made key recommendations aimed at politicians and policy makers. Many of these recommendations have been taken forward by Welsh Government and councils to improve how the Act is working.

We need to continue the momentum and are grateful to you for helping us by completing the questionnaire.
