All Together Now is a joint national project delivered by the All Wales Forum (lead), Cardiff and Vale Parents Federation, Cartrefi Cymru and Alzheimer’s Society Wales. It also works at a more localised informal partnership level with the wider All Wales Forum 30 parent carer networks, local authorities and third sector providers, to ensure a grassroots community led approach.
The aim of the project is to take the known skills and knowledge of family carers and enable them to take forward community led solutions they have identified, helping to meet both the needs of their learning disabled relatives, many of whom still live at home and have complex needs, as well as those of the family carer. It aims to reduce the demand on traditional support services, by enabling reciprocal partnership sharing of resources and knowledge, greater engagement and a more creative outreach for all involved. The project has an overarching aim of improving family support and prevention services, whilst increasing the amount of voice and control for both the service user and their family carers.
There are four key areas of partnership work attached to the project, covering play opportunities and reciprocal peer respite, co-operative service delivery models and peer support, living well and retaining independence into older age, and ensuring high quality information, advice, assistance and peer advocacy across Wales.
We are currently looking to recruit two dynamic individuals who can help shape the Family Foundations and Ageing Well strands of the project. You must be a creative and pragmatic problem solver, able to work with both groups and individuals to enable them to realise potential amongst both themselves and within their local communities. Sometimes the solutions might be quite simple and require the smallest of interventions, others may be more ambitious and require a more detailed approach. Flexible, friendly, patient and passionate about making a difference, you will help us to enable real change and real outcomes for families across Wales.
