What is "The Code"?

The Code of Professional Practice for Social Care (the Code) sets standards, or rules, for all care professionals in Wales. Registered workers can also find practice guidance relevant to their role.

The Code of Practice is an essential part of making sure all those working in social care in Wales are delivering services to a high professional standard. That's why the Care Council is making the code available on your mobile device, so you can refer to it at any time, whether you're in the office or out and about.

The Code of Practice for Social Care Workers sets out the high standards expected of paid staff as they go about their daily work of supporting and caring for people in our society.
