Housing and Regeneration Minister Rebecca Evans has announced that nearly £6 million of Welsh Government funding will go to Care & Repair agencies to support their work to support vulnerable older people.

There are 13 Care and Repair agencies in Wales, whose responsibilities cover every local authority area.

As well as delivering small adaptations to properties, agencies also provide free home visits to help keep residents safe and warm, and protect their health and well-being.

Last year, Care and Repair agencies helped more than 40,000 older people in Wales, carried out over £11.5 million of repairs, helped more than 22,000 with safety and falls-prevention work, and carried out some 17,000 small adaptations.
