Golau Caredig is a Hafod Extra Care Facility which provides affordable independent living accommodation for people over 55 in 42 purpose-built one and two-bedroom flats. Individual care and support is provided by ‘in house’ domiciliary care and a tenant support service. Since its official opening in 2015 SI Barry & District has forged links with Golau Caredig .
Tracey recently demonstrated how to make a hedgehog by book folding at Golau Caredig, Barry. Residents and Soroptimists spent an enjoyable morning chatting and making hedgehogs through this simple craft exercise. At the end of the session hedgehogs were named and then taken away to their new “homes”. Tracey, who has made over 30 hedgehogs recently to raise funds for a project in Lesotho, said “It was a really successful morning with everyone engaged in the activity as well as having an opportunity to socialise”. SI Barry & District has organised a number of talks and demonstrations for residents over the past two years and have forged strong links with this Hafod Extra Care Facility which is greatly valued by all concerned.
