We’re delighted to announce the launch of three bilingual community platforms in West Wales.
This work has been commissioned by the West Wales Care Partnership through the ‘Healthier West Wales’ transformation programme and is being delivered through a collective of public and voluntary sector organisations across Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion.
The aim of these three platforms is to make primary care more sustainable by providing alternative social models of support and self-management. Members of each free platform can exchange their time and skills online, find community groups and events (and post their own) and also join or start project teams.
Speaking on the eve of a new campaign to promote kindness, Lee Hind, Time Banking Development Officer, says:
Rebecca Evans from Pembrokeshire Public Health Team from Public Health Wales adds:
These three ‘Connect To’ platforms are the only bilingual timebanking platforms available in Wales and also represent Made Open's new multi-language capability.
The three platforms can be accessed here:
