The main aim of the project is to ensure carers feel informed, empowered and supported

To increase emotional resilience, help to reduce isolation and support carers to achieve a greater sense of well-being, be that mentally, physically or socially.

Contact us if you’d like to be referred to the project. Once referred, you will receive a Well-Being Assessment carried out by one of our Well-Being Officers. This is an informal chat where we’ll cover the 5 ways to well-being with you, supporting you to focus on improving your own mental, physical and social health.

Well-Being Matters

Following on from the very successful Carers Well-Being Project, NEWCIS was awarded a further £500,000 from the National Lottery Community Fund.  

The main aim of the project is to ensure carers feel informed, empowered and supported. To increase emotional resilience, help to reduce isolation and support carers to achieve a greater sense of well-being, be that mentally, physically or socially.  

Our well-being officers will be on hand to offer one to one support, and we’ll be working hard on increasing our capacity to offer courses, breaks and social events with the help of volunteers.  

Volunteer for the project

If you’d like to volunteer with us please get in touch!

We’ll be actively recruiting and training volunteers to help deliver and steer the project particularly with regards to providing a listening ear service, referring carers and supporting events.

Those who have already done some training are welcome to apply. 

Community Garden Project

The Community Garden Project is part of the Well-Being Matters Project funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. The aim of the group is to get carers and those they care for involved in nature as a way of promoting mental, physical and emotional well-being. It started with just a few carers sharing ideas and now we have links with over 8 local community projects helping to connect! Including members from Pure Vegetable Well-Being Horticulture Wales.
