Covid 19 and supporting carers
For the coming weeks (or months) we shall not be using the office base or holding social gatherings
Instead, staff will be working from home and maintaining our online information resources on a daily basis
If you are not already following us on twitter, facebook or instagram then perhaps you would like to
Caring is difficult and isolating enough before this crisis so we hope to keep carers in touch with one another via social media
Lots of useful information on the corona virus and support or services offered can be found on the government website as well as on the Cardiff Council and the Vale Council sites
The Welsh government have compiled a list of useful information, follow this link
Thinking of setting up a small groups to support people through this crisis? If you are, have a look at our news pages for some useful information
If you have any information or tips to share or wish to find out about support in your area please join us on social media and together we can help one another cope
Above all stay safe and never forget- you are not alone!
Welcome to the Parents' Federation
For over 30 years Cardiff & the Vale Parents Federation has been supporting families caring for a relative with a learning disability.
It is run by parents, for parents who understand the difficulties that families and lifelong carers face. Almost 2000 local families are members.
Carers in Wales save the government over £8,000,000,000 each year!
We hold regular and informal carers social gatherings where you can meet other carers, share experiences and ideas (plus pick up some useful tips)
We can signpost you to sources of support and give information on your rights as a carer and what assistance you are entitled to receive
What Matters to You Matters to Us!
