Welsh Government wants people who use well-being and personal care services to have more say in how they are run and what they offer. It wants more social enterprises and co-operatives to deliver these services.

Our Care to Co-operate team provides support to people in Bridgend and Swansea who want to set up or run well-being services in a more collaborative, co-operative and inclusive way. We believe that services are better when the people who need support and the people who provide support work closely together.

In Bridgend, Development Officer Paula Lunnon is leading our project Connecting Carers. Our aim is to assist people who are caring for or looking after family and friends, to think about their own well-being and to join together in small mutually supportive groups.

Our Development Officer Kate McCormack is working with Swansea Council and the Swansea CVS (Council for Voluntary Service) delivering Communities Together. Our aim is to change how care and support is designed in two areas of the county, in Clydach and across the Gower. By co-operating, people requiring care are put in control and directly connected to local organisations that can provide services.
