If you are finding that…

  • you would like to get out and about more
  • some chores are getting too much
  • your carer needs a little support
  • you spend too much time on your own

Then support services provided by Solva Care may be the answer!

How Does It Work

You make contact with the Co-ordinator, who will take all relevant information and then find the most suitable and available volunteer to deal with your request.
The Co-ordinator will also act as a link to other sources of help and information, if the  requested service would be better handled by another organisation.

How safe is it to use the service?

The Services are provided by volunteers recruited locally, who have

  • been DBS checked*
  • signed a Confidentiality Agreement
  • received induction & training and are insured.

The Co-ordinator is employed by Solva Community Council and handles the organisation and management of the day to day operation of the project.
