What is BTG?

Bridging The Gap (BTG) is NEWCIS’ respite scheme that provides you with a short period of rest from your caring role. A short break from your caring role could include attending a personal appointment, a NEWCIS event or socialising with friends. If you care for someone living in Denbighshire, Flintshire or Wrexham, you could be eligible to access the award-winning scheme.

Family Support Grant

The BTG Family Support Grant can be used to help with travel costs for a family member to come to you and offer support – this could be practical tasks such as shopping, cleaning, cooking, walking the dog or assisting you with your caring role. Contact us for more information! We’d need to know: the number of days you will require family support, estimated travel costs, how many meals you will need to provide your family member, if they’ll be any day trip expenses and if you would be able to photograph receipts and forward these to us.

If you wish to reapply for the scheme again after the six months are up, providing you still meet the criteria and NEWCIS still have funding available, you will be reissued a new allocation code. Please note that the scheme is in high demand and can sometimes hold a waiting list. All listed agencies and providers are quality monitored via the council under the North Wales Domiciliary Care Agreement.
