Council Seeks Involvement From Local Community
Denbighshire’s Shared Lives Scheme is currently looking for local people who would like to become ‘carers’.
The scheme provides extra support in the daily lives of people in need – they may have a complex disability, mental health problems, physical disabilities, or sensory impairment which affects their lives.
Council is looking for enthusiastic and caring individuals, couples or families who live in Denbighshire and have a spare room in their home to be a Shared Lives Carer. ’s Shared Lives Scheme has dedicated staff who provide practical support, advice and guidance to Shared Lives Carers. Appropriate training will be given and fees arranged.
Bobby Feeley, CabinetLead Member for Well-being and Independence,said:” Denbighshire’s Shared Lives Scheme aims to play a crucial link in supporting those in our community who need help the most. Experience of working in the care sector would be useful but isn’t a requirement – enthusiasm is just as important!”
interested in becoming a Shared Lives Carer or those who would like to find out more should contact Denbighshire’s Single Point of Access and ask to speak to the Shared Lives Scheme Coordinator.

Green Flag Award
The Afon Elwy Environment group have been successful in gaining the coveted Green Flag award.
The Green Flag Community Award is the benchmark for parks and green spaces which are managed by volunteers and lets visitors to the area know that they are seeing an exceptional space with high standards.
The Afon Elwy Group, who help to care for the riverside areas of our city, work closely with Keep Wales Tidy and the City Council, organise regular litter picking, plant trees and wild flowers, place bird and bat houses, organise river cleaning events and generally care for an area which is the jewel in the crown of our beautiful city.
Pictured with their award winning flag are, left to right:
