The AWASH group consists of heads of adult services from all local authorities and meets on a bi-monthly basis to discuss those issues that contribute to the effective delivery of services for adults, and in particular older people.

These all-Wales discussions allow senior staff to share best practice and to consider how services for adults are changing across Wales. AWASH is focusing on a range of strategic issues over the next few years, including the embedding of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, examining the changes needed in the provision of domiciliary and residential care, and responding to the challenges in providing care and support to an increasing number of the older population with dementia.
