Councils in Wales will be given £10m to manage social care winter pressures, the Welsh Government has confirmed.

Health and social services secretary, Vaughan Gething, said: ‘Social care plays a huge part in delivering care as close to home as possible.

‘I realise it has been under considerable pressure over recent months.

'In recognition of the demand being experienced, I have decided to provide an additional £10m to local authorities to enable social services to support people in their homes and communities.’

The minister for children and social care, Huw Irranca-Davies, added: ‘Our health and social care services are heavily dependent on each other so I’m really pleased we have been able to put this extra £10m investment into our social services so that local government can continue providing high quality social services to people across Wales.’
