Solva Care Pilot Project
The overall aim of the Solva Care Community Project is to improve the health and wellbeing of the community by establishing a social enterprise company that would provide care packages at a variety of levels according to need. The work of locally based carers will be supported and enhanced by a team of volunteers.
By focusing on the needs of the individual in the community and providing continuity of care, the project will also strengthen and support the wider community and facilitate an integrated holistic and sustainable approach to well being in the community.
Funding will support a two year pilot working with teams of volunteers, to establish the best ways of working at a local level to deliver a full programme of care to members of the community in need of help. The model of community care proposed is unique and was devised after community consultation concluded that this was a sustainable solution to meeting the current and longer term needs of the community, especially the older members. Funding wil contribute towards the appointment of a part time Project Coordinator to assist in establishing the volunteer framework and arranging and delivering the training of volunteers. The Co-rdinator will also work towards implementation of the next phase (post pilot) of project delivery.
