Providing services to a network of Care & Repair Agencies across Wales, Care & Repair Cymru is a national charitable body and actively works to ensure that all older people have homes that are safe, secure and appropriate to their needs.
Through our work, and close relationship with the 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. × Close
We provide a number of services that support and help older people complete repairs, improvements and adaptations to their homes, through the provision of expert advice, support and practical assistance. We help older people with works ranging from very small items such as the repairing of a small water leak or the installation of handrails through to major jobs such as bathroom conversions or replacing a roof.
