AM celebrates Care and Repair Week

Labour AM for the Vale of Clwyd, Ann Jones has marked Care and Repair Week.

Care and Repair is a national charitable body that actively works to ensure that all older people have homes that are safe, secure and appropriate to their needs. Care and Repair Cymru provide services to the network of 22 Care & Repair Agencies across Wales.

Ms Jones said: “Care and Repair do wonderful work across Wales in helping older people stay in their own homes. Housing is important for everyone, especially older people as having an unsafe house can lead to all sorts of problems including aggravating existing health issues.

“I have great respect for all the work that they do and I am delighted to mark Care and Repair week by celebrating just how many people they have helped right across Wales”.

Care and Repair Cymru also listens to the needs and desires of older people and on the national stage in order to articulate this information to policy makers at the Welsh Government. This advocacy work helps inform thinking about Housing Policy for older people, and wider Health and Social Care policy for older people which is intrinsically linked to appropriate, good quality housing.
