Mike Hedges AM welcomes £6m to support older people to live at home

The Housing and Regeneration Minister has announced nearly £6m of Welsh Government funding will go to Care & Repair agencies to support their work to support vulnerable older people.

Mike said…. ‘We all know that people prefer to live in their own homes for as long as possible, but they have to be assisted to do so in a safe and secure environment. This money will enable this to happen. Care and Repair in Swansea support people in my constituency and I have seen for myself the good outcomes for my constituents that flow from this.

This is an investment that will have a real impact on people’s lives and is to be welcomed!’

Care & Repair agencies work in every part of Wales and provide services to help older people live as independently as possible in their own homes. As well as delivering small adaptations to properties, agencies also provide free home visits to help keep residents safe and warm, and protect their health and well-being.
