YstradgynlaisCarers in Ystradgynlais and Surrounding Areas

This is your webpage created and to be developed by fellow Carers and Credu staff

Carers in Ystradgynlais and surrounding areas, just a few years ago were saying that they could feel quite marginalised and so they worked with Credu (kindly funded by Tudor Trust, Rank Foundation and Powys County Council) on a range of issues, have created a hub, a gardening group, a craft group and informal young carers and adult carers peer support networks.

This webpage is the beginnings of an online resource with and for Carers in this area so that you can get connected in the way that you want to, when you want to!

To find out about groups and one to one support for Carers in your area you can contact us on 01597 823800
