Welsh Reablement Alliance


The Welsh Reablement Alliance

The Welsh Reablement Alliance is an umbrella organisation for professional associations, voluntary sector partners and care providers who provide reablement services in Wales.

We believe that by speaking with a united voice on reablement, we can give a clear indication of what is needed to improve reablement provision.

 The Alliance is comprised of:

Royal Voluntary Service

The College of Occupational Therapists

Age Cymru

The Stroke Association In Wales

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy

Care & Repair Cymru

MS Society Cymru

The Carers Trust

United Kingdom Home Care Association

Alzheimer’s Society

Mind Cymru

BASW Cymru

What is reablement?

At heart, reablement is about helping people to do things for themselves to maximise their ability to live life as independently as possible.

It’s about supporting the whole person – addressing their physical, social and emotional needs.

It’s an outcome-focused, personalised approach, whereby the person using the service sets their own goals and is supported by a reablement team to achieve them over a limited period.

It focuses on what people can do, rather than what they can’t, and aims to reduce or minimise the need for ongoing support after reablement.
