Why not take advantage of a new website for Wales? A new web resource promoting wellbeing across Wales will launch later this month. Dewis Cymru (Welsh English will officially launch at the National Social Services Conference at Venue Cymru on 30 June. The website will provide people across North Wales with information about wellbeing activities and support, based on their postcode location and needs. Information is available on everything from leisure centre classes to mental health support groups and much more, and if you don’t use the internet ask about Dewis Cymru at your library, leisure centre or any County Voluntary Council. The website has been built in North Wales by over 800 organisations including the NHS, volunteers, not for profit organisations, charities, libraries, leisure centres, social services and care providers. Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Social Services, Councillor Christine Jones, said: “We want to do everything we can to ensure people stay aware of all of the services and support open to them. “Even something as close to home and local as a luncheon club or coffee morning can be of immeasurable help to people who might otherwise be lonely – ensuring people are directed to such services is hugely important. “And at the other end of the scale, we also want to work with larger partner agencies in health, the third sector and other local authorities to make sure we are doing all we can across North Wales.” For more information, search or browse at and
