What is Solva Care?

Solva Care is a registered charity set up by the community residing in the parish of Solva and Whitchurch in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

We are committed to building and sustaining a vibrant, strong and connected community, by working closely with our Community Council and other local groups and organisations.

Our aim is to maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of our community by enabling our residents to stay in their own homes and remain part of their community.  We do this by running a volunteer service to provide assistance where needed, as well as running social events to counteract loneliness and isolation; we also provide extra support for those caring for their relatives.

Find out more about how we can help

“I volunteered for Solva Care because, as well as doing something for others, it makes me feel better myself. 

The things I do are small, not arduous and not particularly time consuming. There is no pressure and it certainly appears to make a difference to lots of people. 

From a purely selfish point of view – I may need a little help myself in years to come!”
