@Home: Working together to deliver care closer to home
The Regional Partnership Board (RPB) is made up of Cardiff Council, Vale of Glamorgan Council, Cardiff & Vale University Health Board, Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust, Housing, Third and Independent sectors and carer representatives.
Our aim is to improve the health and well-being of the population and improve how health and care services are delivered.
We want to ensure that children and young people get the best start in life, that adults are able to live well and are supported to age well by making sure high-quality health and social care services are available when they are needed.
The RPB has brought together a number of projects that work together so you can access the support you need, when and where you need it. These projects form the @Home Programme.
Over the next five to ten years, the programme will deliver a new model of joined-up care and support. If you live in Cardiff or the Vale of Glamorgan, health and social care services will support you to live independently for as long as possible, receiving care in, or as close to, your home and community as possible.
In addition, the @Home Programme will deliver further improvements to people’s experience of using health and social care services. These will include:
- Information, advice and guidance that is easy to access and means you can take control of your care;
- Support to help you stay well and avoid hospital admission. Getting you home from hospital as soon as possible so you have more time at home doing the things that are important to you.
- Services to help you stay well;
- New health and care facilities in the heart of communities across the region, reducing your need to travel to hospital;
- Developing our workforce and sharing information to improve your experience of health, care and support services
Taken together, the @Home Programme represents an ambitious new offer for health and social care to people who live in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. Although it will take time for all these changes to take place, we are committed to improving everyone’s experience of using health and social care services.
This website provides further information for residents of Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan and staff from across the Regional Partnership on what the @Home Programme will mean to you. We hope that you enjoy reading more about our ambition and the exciting plans ahead.

We want every child in Cardiff and Vale to have the opportunity to thrive. Our work focuses on children in vulnerable situations and the services that support them.
We know how hard it can be to find help when people need it the most. We want to make sure there is community support to help people stay as healthy as possible so they can carry on doing the things that matter most to them.
As a Partnership we have worked together with people with a learning disability, their families, carers and the third and independent sector to produce a clear direction for the planning and delivery of adult learning disability services across the region over the next five years.
