About Us

Swansea Carers Centre is a specialist voluntary organisation providing support to unpaid carers and former carers across the City & County of Swansea.

We offer information, advice and support to make life easier for the carer and the person they are looking after. We provide opportunities for to meet other carers, share experiences and work together to get things changed for the benefit of everyone.

All our services are completely free and confidential.

History

In April 2005, with the support of the local authority, SCVS and Age Concern Swansea, Swansea Carers Centre became an independent charity intent on providing a holistic service for all adult carers across the City & County of Swansea. Since then we have grown and diversified our services while successfully responding and adapting to the ever changing challenges facing us.

As such we remain grateful for the support we receive from all our funders and remain mindful that without the core funding we receive from the local authority it would be difficult for us to successfully draw down funding from other sources.

As we strive to maintain and develop our services during this difficult economic climate, we remain committed to providing quality services which meet the needs of carers and which have been externally accredited. This includes Carers Trust Quality Mark, and external evaluations of our Big Lottery Funded Projects.

Board of Trustees

Swansea Carers Centre is governed by a Board of Trustees.

Ultimately our Board of Trustees is responsible for ensuring that the charity, and everyone working for it, operates within an increasingly complex legal framework. Each Trustee is an unpaid volunteer with particular skills and experience. Meet our current Board of Trustees:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
