Carers Well-Being Project

The Carers Well-Being Project is in its third week of infancy with Lesley, Maxine, Lynne, Mike, Hayley, Shelagh and Carolyn joining forces to plan and develop services. Carers from Flintshire, Denbighshire and Wrexham will benefit from the services that will be provided which will include breaks for carers, well-being support including counselling, a specialised carer advocate, dedicated carers benefit advisor and activities, events and training.  The project will support carers living in North East Wales, who are caring for a person with a long-term condition or a disability, to remain in their roles for longer and allowing their cared for to remain living in their own homes in their communities. Carers will be supported to access what they need quickly and easily, reducing the stress that they face each day and giving them a supportive point of contact that will provide an answer to their questions when they need to be asked.

 

Claire Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer of NEWCIS said “We are all delighted that our project has been successful in achieving funding from the Big Lottery. We look forward to working with even more carers this year and providing vital services that will support carers own health and well-being.”

Lesley Parry, Project Manager for the Carers Well-Being Project said “The staff have been hard at work with setting up this project and we will shortly be announcing our launch date and venue, keep an eye on our media channels and newsletter for details.”
