Eisteddfod time for Dewis promotion


Looking for advice on staying well ? Then visitors to the National Eisteddfod being held in Anglesey next month can learn about the Dewis Cymru website.

Representatives will be available at the Betsi Cadwaladr marquee on the Eisteddfod Maes on Thursday, August 10,  promoting www.dewis.wales as  the place for information about all issues relating to well-being in Wales,

The website is also the first point information about local organisations and services that can help.

The website includes information on key topics: Being Well; Being Social; Being at Home; Being Safe; Managing Your Money; Children and Families and Looking After Someone.

Bethan Jones Edwards, Head of Regional Collaboration of the North Wales Social Care and Well-being Services Improvement Collaborative, said: “Being well isn’t just about being physically healthy and free from illness, it’s also how you feel about yourself and your life as a whole.

“People often have a greater sense of well-being when they have strong social networks, suitable housing, they are in employment and/or education (if they wish to be) and they are healthy, both physically and emotionally.

“The Dewis Cymru website is a great one stop shop for all the information you need about well-being. There is a directory of services and activities available in your community. It’s all about pointing people in the right direction to the wealth of support already available.

“We are delighted to have this opportunity to promote the Dewis website at the Eisteddfod. A representative will also be available at Anglesey Council’s marquee throughout the week.”

People can visit the website to register and to access details of support available in their county.
