A Bridgend woman in her seventies who repeatedly considered ending her life during lockdown has praised the services of BAVO (Bridgend Association of Voluntary Organisations) Community Navigator scheme, describing her contact there as “an angel without wings”.
As work progresses on the new Primary and Community Care Centre in Mountain Ash, the building has been given its new identity, with a little help from the local community.
Funding from the Welsh Government has been announced for a new £23m integrated health and wellbeing village in Bridgend, which will bring healthcare services to the centre of the community.
It is a well-known fact that visitors can help patients recover faster, and also help reduce their anxiety and stress.
Bridgend’s first Cluster Funded Community Navigator has proved a huge success, helping over 150 patients in the first year in the job.
