accessibility & help
The Gofal y Ddolen/Community Support Service helps people over the age of 50 who may be isolated and lacking in confidence after a hospital stay, illness, bereavement etc. Using our dedicated, caring and trained team of volunteers and staff the service helps build confidence and independence, re-introducing people to their community by linking them up with local social groups and services. Our team can support individuals for up to 12 weeks.
Using a person centred approach we will help individuals to create an action plan which will detail current challenges and goals that they would like to achieve. We will then work with them and support them to overcome these challenges and achieve their goals. In doing so we can help individuals to manage at home and get out and about and reconnected with their local community.
