Summer 2015

Outcomes Collection Tool

Pembrokeshire Supporting People team in collaboration with Ceredigion and Powys have developed an online Outcome collation tool which can be found here http://surveys.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/supporting_people_services/index.htm    

It is expected that the system will make collection less labour intensive for providers and the Supporting People team.


Supporting People Team in Pembrokeshire

There have been some changes within the Supporting People team, in November 2013 the Supporting People team moved from the Housing Directorate and into Adult Social Care, the Lead Officer is now managing the Contract's team in addition to SP. For any queries regarding Supporting People please contact Jane Williams on 01437 77675, Dani Busby is now undertaking reviews of Adult Service as well as SP. As of January 2015 the Regional Development Co-ordinator position is being hosted by Carmarthenshire County Council, please contact the Carmarthenshire Supporting people Team for further details.          


Budget Reductions

In 2015/16 the Supporting People budget was reduced nationally and going forward it is expected to suffer a further reduction in 2016/17. As a result of this the Supporting People team locally are working with providers to try and reduce costs of service in line with budget reductions with as little disruption to services.      


Dementia Floating Support Service

This is a pilot service provided by Hywel Dda University Health Board which has been operational since April 2013.  The service was evaluated in December 2013 and as a result the project has been extended until 30 November 2014 whilst work is undertaken to remodel the service.

If you wish for any further information or to make a referral to this service please contact, Rachel Ashton on rachel.ashton@wales.nhs.uk


HIV/Aids Floating Support Service

This service was previously a pilot project funded jointly by the Counties of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire.  The project was delivered by Aids Trust Cymru. The service was evaluated in August 2013 and the conclusion of the evaluation was that although the service needed to be remodelled it was a valuable service with invaluable expertise. Unfortunately in October 2013 Aids Trust Cymru ceased trading due to the loss of one of their major funding streams.  As a result the service was lost.

Due to the mainly positive evaluation of the service, it was decided that the now gap in service needed to be filled and as such Gwalia now provide a service to this client group within the region.  To aid in this, Gwalia recruited a former Aids Trust Cymru employee who brings with her a wealth of knowledge.  A recommendation within the initial report was that the service would benefit from widening its scope to also include those with Blood Bourne Viruses and this is now in place and the service has been renamed West Wales Blood Bourne Virus Service. For further information please contact Julia on Julia.Amsbury@gwalia.com or Claire claire.chester@gwalia.com


Supported Housing Project for Young Males

The Supporting People Planning Group have long identified that there is a lack of supported accommodation for Young Male's living within Pembrokeshire. As a result a pilot project is being developed alongside Gwalia Care and Support to provide supported accommodation for young male's 16-25 in Haverfordwest. The project is expected to come online in the summer of 2015, for further information please call Annette Brenchley 01646 698 820 or email annette.brenchley@gwalia.com   


Bro Preseli Extra Care Scheme

Bro Preseli opened in 2014 in Crymych, Pembrokeshire. There are 40 apartments alongside a new GP practice and day care services. Bro Preseli has been built using sustainable construction methods which maximise sunlight so all apartments have plenty of natural light. Floating Support can be accessed by the residents living within the scheme as and when they need it. There still a small number of vacancies in this brand new scheme, details can be found by calling 01792 482702
