Wales lays bill to ban profits in children’s care

Welsh Government has laid the Health and Social Care (Wales) Bill, which aims to remove private profit from the care of looked-after children.

Other aspects of the bill aim to give people more say and control over their healthcare by enabling direct payments for continuing healthcare.

Minister for Social Care Dawn Bowden said that private profit should be made from caring for children and young people whose circumstances require them to be in the care of a local authority.

If passed, this bill will eliminate private profit from the care of looked-after children and ensure public money is used to deliver improved services.

Brendan Roberts, a care-experienced young person and a member of the Voices from Care Cymru board of trustees, said: “We think that public money that is being spent by our corporate parents to provide for our care should all be spent on that.”
