What is Bridging The Gap Gwent (BTGG)?

Bridging The Gap Gwent (BTGG) is NEWCIS’ respite scheme that provides you with a short period of rest from your caring role.

Respite care means taking a break from caring, while the person you care for is looked after by someone else. It lets you take time out to look after yourself and helps stop you becoming exhausted and run down.

A short break from your caring role could include attending a personal appointment, an event or socialising with friends.

If you care for someone who resides in Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Gwent, Monmouthshire, Newport or Torfaen, you could be eligible to access the award-winning scheme.

The scheme is accessible to unpaid adult carers and young carers (under 16).
