Accessing Day Opportunities

You can access our service in two ways … as a private customer if you do not have eligible social care needs or through a social care assessment.

If we assess you as having eligible care needs, we will work with you and your carers to draw up a care and support plan. This will be based on what 'outcomes' you'd like to achieve. For example, you may wish to make use of facilities in the local community and meet new people.  You will also be asked to complete a financial assessment to decide whether or not you will need to pay for some or all of the day opportunities you use. 

Once your care and support plan has been developed and we have decided on your eligible funding amount, we will support you to access the range of activities available that would meet your care outcomes. We can either support you to do this through our online service via telephone (or face to face) or we can set you up on the booking system so that you can choose activities for yourself and pay with your funding amount credited on the system.

Should you wish to purchase activities that are outside your care needs or that are over your level of funding, you can top up the difference using your own funds via debit card.

The system will allow you to browse activities that have been selected as meeting your care outcomes.

It will be your choice which of these activities you wish to access.

Each activity provides a summary of what is on offer and will be listed under one or more of the following group headings

  • The Arts
  • Community Groups and mental health support
  • Physical Activities
  • Work placement

It will also provide information around what provision will be available for you when you attend the activity, such as hoists, changing facilities, 1:1 support and/or wheel chair accessibility.

Currently our new service is open to those in the South West of Pembrokeshire. Traditional referral routes for those accessing Day Opportunities for other areas of Pembrokeshire remain in place as the service develops.
