Care & Repair Cymru has published their latest Annual Report, showcasing everything the service has achieved in the last 12 months.

The Care & Repair movement has had another busy yet rewarding year. This Annual Report for 2021-22 will provide you with an overview of our activities and demonstrate how we have improved homes and changed the lives of thousands of older people this past year. During the year, 56,897 older people were helped to stay independent at home by:

  • Essential large and small adaptations.
  • Essential works of repairs and improvements to houses that were damp or in serious disrepair.
  • Preventing or reducing the risk of falls. Making homes warmer and more energy efficient.
  • Providing specialist support to those with sensory loss, stroke, and dementia. Supporting older patients with a quicker safe discharge from hospital.
  • Helping people claim all benefits they are entitled to. Raising and distributing hardship funds. Raising and managing funds for major projects.

Overall, it’s been another challenging but successful year. As Chair and Chief Executive, we would like to thank everyone involved in our work during 2021/22, including Care & Repair Agencies, Welsh Government, national and local partners, third sector partners, and all our funders. We would also like to pay tribute to the fantastic staff team at Care & Repair Cymru for their hard work, flexibility, and adaptability to new ways of working and for making such a difference to the quality of life of older people across Wales.
