Carers Week Wellbeing Event

Carers Week Wellbeing Event

Earlier this month on the 8th June, NEWCIS celebrated Carers Week with a big wellbeing event. Unpaid carers from Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham were invited to the Ramada Plaza in Wrexham to explore new organisations, understand more about wellbeing and the support available. 

The event was very well attended by carers and over 40 organisations who came together to offer information about their services and the support available (as well as some freebies)!

Among the invited guests were Lord Mayor Andy Williams, Consort Luke Williams, and High Sheriff of Clwyd Kate Hill Trevor, Wrexham Singalongs and NEWCIS volunteers.

"It was very well attended, and it was amazing to see the number of local groups who are working so hard in the sector to help and support"
"Thank you for such a wonderful day yesterday. I had a great afternoon!"
"A wonderful afternoon doing taster treatments at the NEWCIS event and to see many familiar faces and meet some new. Lots of organisations there and so well organised, thanks to Jo and Tracey. It must have taken a lot of hard work and effort. I feel humbled and proud to work with this organisation and people who care so much, especially hearing the struggles and frustrations that they go through."
