Blaenau Gwent Carers Engagement Project is able to offer you free confidential information and advice to help anyone in a caring role. Private one-to- one drop sessions will commence at GLAN RHYD SURGERY on 23rd September 2016 and will be held on a fortnightly basis. This project offers advice on a range of services relevant to carers and those they look after, including carers rights, available respite care services along with assistance in accessing a carers assessment. For those carers who would like to discuss their caring role within their own homes, home visits can also be arranged.
