"Supporting People" is a government initiative that was introduced in April 2003. It aims to identify, provide and fund quality housing-related support services to vulnerable people to allow them to live independently at home for as long as they wish or are able to do so.
Supporting People, which compliments existing care services is a partnership between the council, people who may require the service and those agencies that provide and support the programme. The Caerphilly county borough Supporting People Team fund a wide range of services including, general advice and counselling, help with domestic care, budgeting and developing life skills.
If you think that you or someone you know could benefit from support in these and other areas, then please visit the Supporting People website to find out more about our services.
