WWCP is one of seven strategic partnerships across Wales which oversee delivery of the Sustainable Social Services agenda and ensure that statutory requirements of the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 are met.
The WWCP has links with other collaborations in West Wales, such as:
- Mid and West Wales Adoption Service
- Regional Safeguarding Boards for adults and children
- Substance Misuse Area Planning Board
- Public Service Boards in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire
- Supporting People Regional Committee
The partnership is supported by a Regional Collaboration Unit, hosted by Carmarthenshire County Council.
Funding for the Partnership is provided primarily through a Regional Partnership Fund (RPF), to which partner agencies contribute, and Welsh Government’s Integrated Care Fund (ICF).
