Deputy Minister visits Ty Enfys



Deputy Minister for Social Services Gwenda Thomas recently visited Cardiff based Ty Enfys Care Home to celebrate the launch of a new Welsh Government White Paper. The residents and team at were delighted to welcome the Deputy Minister and enjoyed showing her the newly refurbished care home.

On Monday September 30th, the Deputy Minister launched a Welsh Government White Paper on the future of regulation and inspection of social care settings in Wales. To mark this historic occasion, the Deputy Minister paid a visit to Ty Enfys Care Home due to its excellent reputation and outstanding levels of care.

Gwenda Thomas spent time chatting with residents and enjoyed a tour of the home, stopping in the newly built farmhouse kitchen, which have been created to give residents even more opportunity to continue the hobbies they love and to offer more interaction between residents.

Home Manager, Sujjata Singh said, “It was wonderful to meet the Deputy Minister.  Our residents loved chatting to her and she was obviously very impressed with what we offer here at
Ty Enfys.”

The Deputy Minister said of her visit, “I was delighted to meet carers and people living and receiving care at Ty Enfys. I value the opportunity to speak to people about their experiences of care and support in Wales.”

She continued, “This White Paper outlines our proposed programme of new policy and legislation, which we believe will enable the regulators to carry out their functions and duties that will achieve the ambitions we have set for better care and support in Wales.  I ask everyone, especially those who receive services, to consider the ideas within this paper. I hope that you will contribute to the consultation so that we can, together, build the best regulatory system for Wales.”
