Golau Caredig provides affordable independent living for people over 55 in 42 purpose built one and two bedroom apartments. All accommodation is available for rent on an assured shorthold tenancy basis and is built to a high specification, including full wheelchair accessibility. Individual care and support is provided by an ‘in-house’ domiciliary care team and a floating support service.

Golau Caredig, located close to Barry town centre, offers onsite facilities such as a restaurant, launderette, IT suite, hair salon, cafe and has great transport links to Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.

Extra Care can be a viable alternative to sheltered accommodation or residential care by encouraging independent living and providing a home for life with care and support services that can increase or decrease as the tenant’s needs change. It is suitable for single people or couples, where one or both have need of more supportive accommodation.

The Development was designed following input from the Design Commission for Wales and has been constructed by Leadbitter to achieve BREEAM (Building Research Environment Assessment Method) standards.
