Just to let you know, everyone at Credu publishes blog posts to share what we are up to – and each author writes their posts in the language they usually use. So that is why some blog posts will be English and some in Welsh, regardless of the website language selection you have chosen. This enables us to keep our news freshly published and regularly updated. Thank you for your understanding!
Young sibling Carers from North and mid Powys met up at Honeypot Pen y Bryn today to talk to staff from All Wales forum about their lives, hopes and dreams.
Staff were impressed by the young Carers positivity and confidence.
The day was made more enjoyable by the sunny weather and the play space of Honeypot.

There’s a new carer-led group in Brecon meeting monthly at the Waterside Bistro at Theatre Brycheiniog. All carers are very welcome to stroll along for a cuppa and a chat. Make friends, let a bee or two out of your bonnet, connect with other carers – the group can be whatever you want it to be.
The next one’s on Wednesday 19th July from 2pm – 4pm. We will be setting a regular monthly date and are waiting for confirmation from the Bistro but meanwhile it would be lovely to see you on 19th!
Credu is delighted to be offering a series of health and wellbeing workshops for carers in Brecon, Crickhowell, Hay and Talgarth in collaboration with Sarah Cronin health education facilitator of ‘An Apple a Day’. The first one is called ‘Stress Less’ to be held on 3rd August at the Red Kite Meeting Room in the TIC in Brecon.
Carers in Welshpool have already had the benefit of Sarah’s experience and expertise. Here are some of the things they said: ‘These workshops have been fantastic. Thank you so much.’ ‘Having the opportunity to have a facilitated meeting has given me a sense of belonging and being cared about.’ ‘It would be wonderful to have a regular programme of meetings.’ ‘I felt valued as a carer but more important I felt valued for being just me.’
I went to the Denbighshire Carers Strategy group today. There’s lots of great work going on to support Carers of all ages in the county. Have a look at the Denbighshire Carers Action Plan here Denbighshire Carers StrategyActionPlanUpdateMay17
