NEWCIS has been providing a lifeline to carers in North Wales for 25 years this year!

Established in Wrexham in 1993, as the North East Wales Carers Information Service (NEWCIS), the organisation previously came under the management of Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council.

Now based in Mold, NEWCIS became an independent charitable organisation in 2015. Led by chief executive Claire Sullivan and her senior management team, the board of NEWCIS has now taken over the strategic direction of the organisation.

NEWCIS works across the counties of Flintshire and Denbighshire, assisted by dedicated volunteers who carry out a variety of tasks including working in the shop, fundraising, administration and distributing the organisation’s quarterly newsletter.

Our mission statement is “For all North Wales unpaid family carers and volunteers to be properly supported and valued in their caring and volunteering roles and provided with a voice, opportunity and choices, to lead a more fulfilling life.”

NEWCIS provide services that range from weekly and monthly social carer groups to counselling, respite schemes, carer assessments and carer breaks.

“It is with great pleasure and pride that I am able to give a short mention for the new website. What a joy it has been to see the new website come to life. I would like to mention the staff and congratulate them all on doing such a grand job. And last but by no means least, thanks must go to the CEO of the company for her excellent lead.” Beth, Chair of the NEWCIS Board of Trustees
