Winter assistance campaign for older people

Winter assistance campaign for older people

Age Cymru Sir Gâr have successfully secured a small grant from Wilkinson’s to run a winter assistance campaign for older people within Carmarthenshire.

It is hoped that this assistance will make a positive difference to the lives of around 150 clients throughout the winter months of 2012/13.

The assistance could be anything from a weekly / fortnightly phone call to ensure an older person is coping with the challenges of winter, or providing winter information packs, liaising with food banks, assistance with snow clearance and gritting (working in partnership with the Dyfed-Powys Probation Service) and/or our handyperson service, and even in some circumstances help with shopping and / or collection of prescriptions.

Indeed, we will endeavour to help where-ever possible and within the remit of the project to ensure older peoples’ lives are made that bit easier this winter.

If you are aware of anyone who may benefit from our help, however small, please contact the project co-ordinator Peter Morgan, at Age Cymru Sir Gâr on 01554 784080, or email on
