Connecting Carers

This project provides support to people in Bridgend who want to set up or run well-being services in a more collaborative, co-operative and inclusive way.

Welsh Government wants people who use well-being and personal care services to have more say in how they are run and what they offer. It wants more social enterprises and co-operatives to deliver these services.

In Bridgend, Development Officer Paula Lunnon is leading our project Connecting Carers. Our aim is to assist people who are caring for or looking after family and friends, to think about their own well-being and to join together in small mutually supportive groups.
