Bridgend Carers Centre
Bridgend Carers Centre specialises in the provision of information, support and short break opportunities to adult carers throughout Bridgend Borough.
The Centre provides one to one support including emotional support at appointments in the Centre and at home.
The Centre provides activities to enable carers to maintain their caring role, including trips, holistic therapies, social events, training, information events and provides welfare benefits advice, legal advice and carers counselling.
We will provide the service and support to enable carers to carry out their role effectively while maintaining their own health, wellbeing and a life of their own.
