We need your ideas and support to make this happen
Do we have your contact details??
We are updating our records to ensure that carers do not miss out on the many offers for help for carers currently available
We need your mobile number to send regular latest updates
Keep up to date with the latest guidelines
Covid rates are higher than ever and it seems the rules on where we go, who we can see and how we can attend to basic needs are constantly changing

Ever considered sharing Direct Payment hours to make them go further?
Direct payments can offer a great deal of flexibility but finding a Personal Assistant (PA) can be tricky and having enough hours to attract one can make things more difficult.
Together with the All Wales Forum of parents and carers we are hosting an event in person and online where you can learn more about how families across Wales have been creative in using hours in ways that open up more opportunities
The event is scheduled for 13th July at the Techniquest centre but you can join online using Zoom

Carers rights and provision During the Covid crisis
The Social Services and Well-being Act 2014 gives carers the same rights to care and support as those in their care. The Coronavirus Act will help local authorities to manage the pressures on our care system.
It is important to know that the Coronavirus Act is not intended to weaken the rights of carers in Wales. Local authorities must continue to maintain the rights of carers under the 2014 Act as much as possible. The Coronavirus Act does not allow local authorities to block, restrict or withdraw whole services.
See the full guidelines on the Welsh Government website
Latest newsletter and information including proposal for cash for carers
The Welsh Government have released £1,000,000 for carers. Details are to be announced in the coming days - see our newsletter and follow us on facebook to find out more.
