Welcome to Age Cymru Powys

We are your local independent charity providing information, advice and support for older people in Powys for many years (formerly Age Concern Powys). Each year we help around 2,000 older Powys residents with over 3,000 issues. One of them could be you, a friend or a relative. We want everyone to be able to love later life.

Coronavirus Emergency Appeal

Please help us be there for older people in Powys

The coronavirus pandemic has changed life for everyone, but some older people are among the hardest hit. Age Cymru Powys is determined to be there during this crisis - but we can't do it without support.

With social distancing for people over 70, Age Cymru Powys' services have never been more in demand. We're working hard to ensure our vital information, advice and loneliness services can continue to help the older Powys people who are reaching out to us during these deeply worrying times.

Please help us be there for older Powys residents who desperately need us during this crisis.

Coronavirus Outbreak: Safe & Well Checks for Older People in Powys 

During these difficult and unprecedented times, Age Cymru Powys remains committed to providing the best support to older people in Powys.

If you are worried about how you or someone else will manage during the coronavirus crisis, we are here to help. Please contact us on 01597 825908 / 01686 623707.

We have all been advised to take measures to help protect ourselves from the Coronavirus. This is particularly important for people over 70 and those with underlying health conditions because they are at higher risk of developing more severe symptoms if they become infected.

We have taken the decision to focus our delivery at the moment to deliver Safe & Well Checks for older people across Powys over the telephone with our team. We will be providing guidance and support, advising on how to put plans in place so that you can remain safe during this difficult time.

Through these Safe & Well Checks we are also gathering information to develop our support based on the needs and issues faced by local older people. Like issues with getting shopping, collecting prescriptions and managing caring responsibilities, loneliness and isolation. In addition to this we are working with local communities and groups and other organisations to help you with these issues to provide help and advice on accessing support that you may require. Call us on 01597 825908 / 01686 623707 or email: enquiries@acpowys.org.uk to arrange a Safe & Well Check or for more information.

Age Cymru Powys Simply Nails Service

Due to the coronavirus pandemic we had to suspend our Simply Nails service - but are now operating again and accepting new clients.

Age Cymru Powys takes the health and well-being of our clients, staff and volunteers very seriously and we always work hard to ensure that everyone remains safe and well. We are carefully following NHS and Government guidelines on how best to respond to the outbreak.

Coronavirus: a short guide

Age UK has produced a new guide about coronavirus (COVID-19) that includes information about the symptoms of the virus, how you can reduce the risk of catching the virus and spreading it to others, and how you can continue to look after yourself and others. It includes a useful organisations section with helpful signposts to other sources of specialist information.
