We were awarded a 'Changing For the Better Grant' from 1st April 2016.
The grant has increased capacity to work at GP surgeries in Bridgend County Borough.
Paula Hall is now able to spend more time identifying and supporting carers the 19 GP practices. Paula has already spent the last few years raising awareness to surgery staff, doctors, nurses and receptionists of the importance of supporting carers and of carers being encouraged to look after their own health and wellbeing. Paula has a regular presence at the Practice Time For Learning Sessions for GPs.
The grant will allow Paula to extend her support by signposting these carers to a range of therapeutic support from Mindfulness to Counselling and from Health Checks to Holistic Therapies.
