Evaluation of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014: Process Evaluation

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report present findings from the Process Evaluation phase of the study. The evaluation, known as the IMPACT study, will examine the implementation and outcomes of the Act through its five principles (and the financial implications of each) and five domains as determined by the study team.

The aim is understand how the legislation has been implemented at a national, regional and local level, looking particularly at the role that the wide range of organisations that are impacted by the Act have had in this implementation.

The objectives of the process evaluation are to:

- consider what planning was undertaken by key partners for the implementation of the Act and whether this was sufficient (This includes planning by Welsh Government, Local Health Boards, Local Authorities, the third sector, the independent sector and other key partners that are considered to be relevant);

- assess whether all components of implementation to date have been completed as intended;

- whether the components of the Act have permeated into practice
assess interpretation of the Act at a national, regional and local level; and

- consider the experience of those involved in implementation, with particular focus on integration, co-production, leadership, management, interaction, training and provision of services in Welsh.
