The ground-breaking Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act, and ‘A Healthier Wales’ the Welsh Government’s 10-year plan, set out an ambition for delivering preventative, integrated health and social care in Wales. Both aim to ensure that services are designed and delivered around the needs and preferences of individuals, and with a much greater emphasis on keeping people healthy and well as close to home as possible. These initiatives led to the development of a fund to support regional partnership boards to provide a renewed focus on community based care, emotional health and well-being, supporting families to stay together safely, care experienced children, home from hospital services and accommodation based solutions. 

CAVO are pleased to announce a new project supported by the Health and Social Care Regional Integration Fund that is working to make Ceredigion’s communities more resilient and better supported. The project has three strands: strengthening Ceredigion’s community support infrastructure, supporting local Community Anchor groups and making a difference in our communities.

Some of the things this project aims to deliver include third sector outreach sessions, digital resource mapping and funding community training sessions, develop community anchor groups and emergency response plans and promote digital services such as Volunteering Wales  and Connect Ceredigion.
