Until 14 May 2016 Exhibition: The Grosvenor School of Modern Art The Grosvenor School of Modern Art was founded in 1925 by Scottish artist Iain Macnab. It soon occupied a leading role in the promotion of modern print-making techniques. Today many Grosvenor School artists are best known for their bold and dynamic linocuts, then a novel technique taught by Claude Flight.


All works in this exhibition are by artists associated with the Grosvenor School. They form a part of a larger group of prints collected by Newport Museum and Art Gallery in the 1950s.

CARE AND SUPPORT IN WALES IS CHANGING: GIVING YOU MORE OF A SAY


Care and support in Wales is changing. From April 6, people will have more say about how social services assess and deliver their care and support.


A national awareness campaign is being launched to inform people in Wales about the changes being introduced by a landmark new Welsh law, the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014.


It will radically transform the way social services are delivered in Wales to meet the needs of individuals and make services sustainable for the future.


The act gives people a stronger voice and real control over the support they need to remove barriers to their wellbeing. It focuses on earlier intervention; increasing preventative services within the community and helping people maintain their independence.


It provides a framework to enable people to get the help they need before their situation becomes critical. The act also promotes

integration between health and social care in order to achieve improved wellbeing outcomes and provides for a strengthened approach to safeguarding people.


The act also: • Introduces new eligibility criteria focused on individual need, replacing the current threshold system.


• Gives carers an equal right to assessment for support to those they care for.


• Ensures easy access to information and advice is available to all.


• Keeps children and vulnerable adults safer by making powers to safeguard people stronger.


• Requires local authorities and health boards to come together in new statutory partnerships to drive integration, innovation and service change.


The national awareness campaign will be delivered in partnership with local organisations across Wales using a variety of media.
