Our clinical team at City Hospice are working as usual to support our patients and families during this difficult time with some adaptions to ensure we meet the Government guidelines with social distancing etc.

We are able to provide information on local support, care options and advice regarding additional arrangements that may be helpful for different situations. There are a number of volunteer organisations that have arisen as a result of community action in response to the pandemic. It is worth discussing with your networks, such as neighbours or local groups such as local faith based groups or sports clubs what is available in your area. Just be mindful that all will be following the current government guidance on social distancing.

We have compiled the directory below of Social Care Support in Cardiff that you may find useful during this Coronavirus outbreak. There are some national organisations too that can offer support and advice via their websites and phone contact.

City Hospice is happy to provide this information which may be of use to the people of Cardiff during the COVID 19 crisis. However we cannot be held responsible for the activities of these organisations. This information is available for you to consider and is not a recommendation and is correct at the time of last access (4th April 2020). We will update information regarding services, however please be aware that in light of the Covid 19 crisis, changes may occur at short notice or without our knowledge.

Outside of this if you do need an help or advice please contact Andrew Wade email  or Katie Tucker email or by telephone  on 02920 542150.

This is where the Priority Services register can help and it’s free to join. It helps us look after customers who have extra communication, access or safety needs. It also helps us tailor our services to support households who may need extra help. You can register free of charge here or you can call 0800 096 3080. If you decide to join WPD’s Priority Services Register, we can:

  • Give you a direct number to call in a power cut, so you can get through straight away
  • Agree a password with you before we visit so you feel safe
  • Provide special help if needed through the British Red Cross
  • Inform you in advance of planned interruptions to your electricity supply
  • Keep you as informed as possible in the event of an unplanned power cut

Anyone self-isolating, as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak , should contact us in the event of a power cut and tell us the situation, even if they are not on the register. We can also be contacted via our website. We will then do our very best to help these customers during a power cut.
