Together improving the health and well-being of people and communities
We’d like to take this time to update you on the creative and innovative ways in supporting the people of North Wales.
Learning Disability Transformation Team
North Wales Together: The Learning Disability Transformation Programme.
The project has been up and running since 2019 and its aim is to ensure that people with learning disabilities can lead a great life.
Community and Culture Change
Alternative Delivery Model (ADM) – Earlier in the summer grants were given to a number of community projects via a Citizen Panel, these panel members have received training and are now ready to follow up and provide quality checks on the progress being made.
We have started a new Voice & Control Project, we areplanning to employ Voice Ambassadors who will be able to help train staff and who could also play a role in checking that people have a voice and are really involved in making decisions about their life. Also this month we held an event over zoom looking at plotting our path for the future, Fran O’Hara helped us capture people’s views, it was an exciting morning with some great ideas.
LD Transformation Facebook Group
This group is continuing to grow and two citizens continue to produce exciting Facebook live interviews, to watch please visit our Facebook page
We have been working with Digital Community Wales and are currently distributing preloaded tablets across the region.
The Tech Library is up and running loaning out equipment, such as VR headsets, sensor watches and Alexa devices so people can try them out.
Also launched over the summer has been the virtual drop-in sessions:
These are on Wednesday afternoons, they are looking to start some face to face sessions over the next month, if the Covid situation allows.

North Wales Workforce Board
Our appreciation of the Social Care sector is huge. The past year and a half has been hard for a lot on so many different levels, but these individuals put their lives on the line every day to make other people smile.
From Social Workers to Home Care Workers, to cooks within local Residential Homes, Occupational Therapists and everything else in between – the work you’ve done has been invaluable. The WeCare North Wales team recognises the sacrifices you’ve made just to help others. From us to you, thank you.
Do you want to make a difference in other people’s lives? Do you have a big heart? Are you hard working? Are you a social person?
If so, between 11-17 October, WeCare Wales Week will shine a light on what working in social care, early years and childcare is really like. Highlighting the variety of jobs that are available, we will be holding events to support jobseekers, workers and employers across North Wales to see what career opportunities are available to you. Talk with employers who are looking for compassionate and enthusiastic individuals, who are willing to learn and dedicate time to others. Explore the variety of roles available together with the options available for progression. Join a team of people who have shown how to triumph in a time of crisis.
