1. People who live independently in accommodation but need support and care on site.

Sometimes people who live on their own need some extra support so they can continue to live independently.

The housing with care programme supports partners to develop suitable accommodation for older people with care needs, adults with learning disabilities or mental health issues, and young people leaving care.

2. People who need more intensive care and support where they live.

The housing with care programme can support the development of accommodation for more vulnerable groups of people who need care where they live.

This includes new small scale residential accommodation for children and young people; short to medium term accommodation for adults with higher needs or behavioural challenges, and intermediate care settings for carers, cared for people and children looked after. It can also fund respite care and rehabilitation.

3. People who need small adaptations to homes and aids to retain their independence.

The housing with care programme supports vulnerable groups where they need minor adaptations to their homes or aid and equipment that promote independence.

This includes repairs, refurbishments to existing homes and other care settings. It can also include supply of equipment and aids, adaptations to existing accommodation and other small scale projects including digital aids and assistive technologies.

The Regional Area Plan lays out the health and social care needs for our communities, population and people. The capital and accommodation investment is an enabler that allows us to develop suitable accommodation with care for those vulnerable groups of people in our communities. The accommodation needs highlighted in the area plan is supported with a 10 year Capital Strategy that defines the priority areas for accommodation development over the next 10 years.

A number of partner agencies, have come together to create a regional Capital Board, who function under the RPB. This board consists of members of senior officers from Rhondda Cynon Taf, Merthyr Tydfil & Bridgend County Borough Councils whose expertise lie in social care and housing, along with partners from registered social landlords and Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board. The board reviews all applications for new accommodation schemes and recommend those for investment, that meet the aims of the needs of the communities.
