Cardi Care

“Cardi Care” is a pilot project that will investigate whether a tool kit, developed by the award-winning Solva Care, is able to be used by other rural communities as a basis of emulating and duplicating the successful community care model that is currently in place in Solva, Pembrokeshire. The aim is to build and sustain vibrant, strong and connected community in villages whilst working closely with the Community Council and other local groups and organisations.

The innovative tool kit is to be piloted in a rural community in Ceredigion, to see whether the Solva Care model could be successfully duplicated elsewhere, for the benefit of other rural communities. The Solva tool kit has recently been completed and can be found here

As this pilot is to test the replicability of the tool kit, it is important that a community closely resembling that of Solva is selected to trial the kit via the “Cardi Care” project. Solva is a small seaside village, heavily reliant on tourism that has a population of around 800 people, a large proportion of whom are over the age of 60 and also a large number of whom have moved into the area. Four potentially suitable locations have been identified within Ceredigion to run the project, based on demographic and geographic information – Aberporth, Llangrannog. New Quay and Borth.
