What is Solva Care and who can use the service?
Solva Care is a not for profit social initiative, which has been set up by Solva Community Council to offer friendly, local support and help to those who need it in Solva and the surrounding area.
It is a community based project focusing on social care. It was set up in 2015, in response to wishes of the local residents, to support individuals and families with a variety of services. The initiative has been extended following the success of the Pilot Project.
the aims of Solva Care are to maintain and improve health and wellbeing by:
- enabling residents to stay in their own homes and remain part of the community
- offering a way to counteract loneliness, isolation and social disadvantage
- providing extra support for those who are caring for relatives
Plans are in place to develop Solva care with more activities to promote wellbeing, and to aid in the provision of high quality personal care packages.
It is a well developed support service, which is provided by a Co-ordinator and local volunteers.
Solva Care also run events open to all residents, such as tea parties and music & movement sessions in the Memorial Hall. Some are run in partnership with other organisations.
There is an ongoing project — Stay Safe, Stay Connected – funded by the Dyfed-Powys Police Commissioner, to raise awareness of and prevent scams in our community.
