AGE CONNECTS CARDIFF & THE VALE
WHO ARE WE?...
We are Age Connects Cardiff and the Vale, an independent registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.
Our vision is to live in a society where older people are respected and enabled to meet their aspirations.
Our Core Purpose is to provide support services for those members of our community over 50 years of age.
The culture of our organisation is reflected in our six Core Values, explained in our animated video. We put people at the centre of what we do, understanding their needs, creating a relationship of trust based on communicating effectively and delivering on our promises in a professional way.
Our Objective is to help, support and enable older people to maintain their independence and improve the quality of their lives and we Aim to do this by:
Recruiting staff and volunteers
Being proactive in seeking partnerships to improve the care and support for older people.
Age Connects Cardiff and the Vale helps thousands of local older people. Help is at hand when people most need it may be coming home to an empty house after a stay in hospital, being supported when making difficult choices such as moving into a care home. For many housebound older people their weekly volunteer visitor may be the only person they see to talk to and spend time with.
All this would not be possible without the tremendous support that we receive from volunteers, supporters, fundraisers, and donations from people just like you. Could you help us make a difference to an older person’s life.
At Age Connects we understand the importance of good wellbeing, which is why we also provide opportunities for older people to maintain their health and remain active in their community. If you want to find out more contact us.
