The Community Assistance Project (CAP) is a partnership project between Age Cymru, local Age Cymru partners and other third sector partners across the whole of Wales.

This project is designed to build confidence and develop resilience in older people, which has been proven to lead to better health and improved wellbeing. Improvements in confidence and resilience also contributes to higher levels of social and communal interaction, which, in turn, increases participation in local communities and ability to access local services. 

This project provides support for older people to help them participate in and connect to their community with the support of trained volunteers.

The project provides two services: A community based, face to face support service called Assist and Connect and a remote telephone listening service called Listen and Connect.

Both services provide friendship, conversation and support, while relieving isolation, loneliness and worry.
