How coffee mornings help the carers of Wales - The Health Lottery

Special Families Maesteg were awarded £10,634 by People’s Health Trust using money raised by Health Lottery Wales.

This two-year project provides coffee mornings for parents and carers of children with disabilities from Maesteg and surrounding areas in Mid Glamorgan. The coffee mornings provide an opportunity for parents or carers to share anything that has happened in their caring role, ask questions and get advice. There will also be weekly exercise sessions for those who wish to participate. The project aims to create a peer support network, improve wellbeing and provide information on benefits and education support to those caring for children with disabilities.
