Cwm-Ni Iach is a project funded by Big Lottery’s People and Places.
The overarching aim of the project is to support people to improve their mental and physical health and well being. The need for the project came from a discussion and consultation with community members and is based on experiences of local people with family members who have or are dealing with low to medium levels of stress, anxiety, depression.
Cwm-Ni Iach services are accesible to the communities of the Upper Neath, Dulais and Swansea Valleys and delivered at Dove Workshop, Glynneath Training Centre, Ystradgynlais Mind, plus many other community venues to suit individual needs.
We have a team of 2 Community Workers, Lianne Byrne, Project Development Workers and Kate Faulkner Advice and Guidance Worker. They will work with groups and individuals to develp activties that can help improve levels of mental and physical health and network on their behalf with specialist organisations to support individuals to improve the quality of their lives.
Kate and Lianne are at Glynneath Training Centre every Tuesday for one to one chat/apointments and hold a drop in coffee and chat at the Centre from 1pm on Thursday afternoons. There will also be lots of helpful activities and groups to get involved with shortly.
