The Carers' Centre in Pontypool has been given a fresh new look and brand new equipment thanks to an Intermediate Care Fund grant and help from Melin, Wales and West Utilities and Dulux.
We donated the services of our painting team who provided six days free labour to Charlotte and Rob from Monmouth, as featured on the BBC One series ‘DIY SOS: The Big Build’ to help transform their home.
We are hosting an event this Friday for Disabled Access Day. At our extra care scheme, Ty George Lansbury, we will be joined by residents, as well as staff from Charter Housing and Newport City Homes, where we will be discussing disability issues affecting our residents and communities.
One of Paula’s first public engagements was meeting Marc Hepton, Operations Manager at Eden Gate and his team of volunteers. His team gives up their own time every week to ensure the centre is open to provide advice, support and hot drinks to homeless people in Newport.
We are open later every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month. So if you find it hard to get in touch during normal office hours you can now catch us until 7pm on these days.
