ACE’s two-year project is called ‘Community-led care: Solutions to social care issues’. It is a partnership between Cwmpas (Cwmpas is the new name for the Wales Co-operative Centre), Action in Caerau and Ely (ACE) and Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services (PAVS) and it is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. They aim to set up two new care and support activities led-by our different communities, one in west-Cardiff called ‘ACE Cares’ and in one in north-east Pembrokeshire called ‘Preseli Cares’. There are four outcomes ACE want to achieve for people in our communities by the end of the project:
- By working together, people receiving care or unpaid carers or people who volunteer, can contribute to and secure rights and entitlements from their own communities.
- By being actively involved in their own care and support, people’s physical health, mental health and well-being will improve.
- People will be helped to make a greater contribution to their communities.
- People receiving care or their unpaid carers will be encouraged to develop personal relationships and social connections that they contribute to and enjoy.
