The NHS Wales Shared Services Partnership, hosted by Velindre NHS Trust are acting on behalf of Cardiff and Vale University Local Health Board who are seeking to establish a contract for a Carer’s Gateway.
The Carers Gateway will aim to improve the quality of life for carers, and the cared for, in Cardiff and the Vale, helping them sustain their caring role and enhance their ability to have a life outside caring. It will do this by making it easier for carers to access information about support and services in the region.
The awarded bidder will provide a Gateway which will provide a ‘one stop shop’ approach to supporting and engaging with carers, providing them with information and advice about services which will support them in their caring role. The Gateway will link with existing services and providers, will not duplicate services already provided and will act as the central link across the region for unpaid Carers. It will do this through a centralised helpline and email enquiry line and face to face support via drop in sessions in community locations, so carers are able to receive information and advice closer to home.
Please follow the link for more information.
