EPSO contact person Cynthia Deguara

As of May 2018, by virtue of Act No. XV of 2018, the Social Care Standards Authority (the ‘Authority’) was established.

The Authority is a regulatory body set up to improve quality and standards in social welfare services so as to protect and enhance the dignity, safety and welfare of all service users.  It is set to achieve its goal both through support and regulation, wherein the service user as well as the service provider will be actively involved in the ongoing process of standard development and improvement.  The Authority anticipates the process of regulation to be a constructive experience that is to be carried out through consultation, collaboration and dialogue.  The Authority believes that through its operations, it will succeed with positively shaping social welfare practices as well as the qualitative development of service in the sector.
