Care and Repair Cymru
What do we do?
Care & Repair Cymru are the “Older People’s Housing Champion”. We are a national charitable body and actively work to ensure that all older people have homes that are safe, secure and appropriate to their needs.
We provide services to the network of 22 Care & Repair Agencies across Wales. Our services to Agencies include policy information and briefing, training and networking events, co-ordination of the national Care and Repair Information System (CARIS), agency support, national PR and communications, co-ordination of funding applications to the Welsh Government, and performance/outcomes evaluation.
Through our work, and close relationship with the 22 Agencies, we listen to the needs and desires of older people and on the national stage articulate this information to policy makers at the Welsh Government. This advocacy work helps inform thinking about Housing Policy for older people, and wider Health and Social Care policy for older people which is intrinsically linked to appropriate, good quality housing.
Why do we do it?
We are committed to raising the standard of housing occupied by older people across Wales. Our particular focus is on older homeowners and private tenants.
Our Vision is that:
All older people shall live in homes that enhance their quality of life.
Our Mission is:
The Care & Repair Movement in Wales exists to ensure that all older people in Wales receive high quality, bespoke housing services to enhance their quality of life.
