Care & Repair Western Bay, who deliver practical support to older people in the Swansea and Neath Port Talbot area, have moved from Enterprise Park on Valley Way to a new location in Clydach.
Emma Tweed, Chief Officer of Care & Repair Western Bay, said: “I am excited to announce that Care & Repair Western Bay have moved to a new home. Following a long search for a space that could meet both our current and future needs, we have found a new home in Clydach, Swansea.
“This will mark a fresh start for the organisation following some years of significant change and will be a new home to both our charity and social enterprise.
“With new ways of hybrid working and our front-line staff now working remotely in the communities in which they live, we have been able to downsize our office space significantly. This will enable us to save costs on overheads which will be reinvested in front-line casework, technical and handyperson services, offering greater value for money for funders and improved services for our clients across Neath Port Talbot and Swansea.
“Our clients are welcome to visit us at our new offices in Clydach, and we can be contacted on 01792 798599.”
Care & Repair Western Bay help older people stay safe at home through carrying out adaptations and repairs. Each year, they support over 6,500 older people and carry out 2,000 free Healthy Home Assessments to identify risks in people’s homes. Through helping clients claim the right welfare benefits, they also secure £1.2m of extra annual income for the most vulnerable older people.
Care & Repair Western Bay is one of 13 Care & Repair Agencies that cover all of Wales. Between them, they visit over 40,000 older people in Wales each year and support them to live safely at home.
