Community Support

Family Support Wales offers a variety of support for all the family. We understand that individuals within your family may require specific support tailored to their needs, but we also understand the importance of supporting those in the family who live day-to-day caring and supporting those they love who may have complex needs or display challenging behaviour.

Direct Payments

The Direct Payment option is used to give autonomy to the individual who is assessed as needing social care assistance. Your local Department of Social Care Services will have the responsibility for completing this assessment or overseeing it. If you are assessed as being in need of social care payments your local authority have a legal duty to offer and arrange Direct Payment facilities.


School Holiday Day Service Provision for Disabled Children

Family Support Wales are planning day trips and day services for disabled children in the Carmarthenshire. We are requesting an expression of interest from families for the list of activities that can be found on our website blog. These activities will be run for children 12 years and under, and children 12 years and over up to the age of 16 years.

The Family Support website will be offering a timetable of events and trips for you to choose. Your choice will only be considered if we have received the below application form.

Family Support Wales cannot guarantee all requested places will be agreed as we are looking to fairly distribute the opportunities across the Carmarthenshire County.

    " I genuinely cannot praise Family Support Wales enough for what they have done for our family by supporting our 15 year old son. Without sounding dramatic they have been complete life savers during extremely difficult and emotive times within our family . They have been beyond accommodating, supportive and reactive to our family needs and I do not know what we would have done without this service especially at that time. All the team have been outstanding and are firm favourites with our son and he always has a big smile on his face when they arrive. Thank you Family Support Wales for giving us the confidence to trust a provision again. Thank you .

    We were first introduced to Family Support Wales during the summer of 2017. We observed that how quickly the support worker formed a relationship with our little one. Always had a calm caring approach tackling each challenge with a smile. We particularly remember how supportive the staff were through our little ones difficult times of change. His commitment will stay with our little one and us always.
