Powys Community Health & Wellbeing Coordination Service

The Powys Community Health & Wellbeing Coordination Service helps people in Powys (aged 18+) and their families or carers, to access community-level services and activities that will help them maintain independent lives and which help prevent their circumstances deteriorating to a point where they might need higher level health or social care services. The service can also help support people when they return to home from hospital by helping other Third Sector services, such as Red Cross, identify additional local services that may be needed.

To meet this need PAVO has been providing an independent Third Sector Broker Service for Powys operating out of Powys People Direct; Powys County Council's (PCC) single point of access contact service for individuals needing support from social services.

PAVO has now changed the service to become the Community Health and Well-Being Coordination Service and it is now also being provided at a community level in many areas of Powys by locally based Community Connectors, as well as through the central point of contact in Powys People Direct. For more information follow the below links:

Mae’r Gwasanaeth yn helpu pobl ym Mhowys (18 oed+) a’u teuluoedd neu ofalwyr i gael mynediad at wasanaethau a gweithgareddau yn y gymuned fydd yn eu helpu aros yn annibynnol a helpu atal i’w hamgylchiadau waethygu nes bo angen lefel uwch o wasanaethau iechyd neu ofal cymdeithasol arnynt. Gall y gwasanaeth hefyd helpu cefnogi pobl wrth iddynt ddychwelyd adref ar ôl bod yn yr ysbyty drwy helpu gwasanaethau trydydd sector eraill, megis y Groes Goch, adnabod pa wasanaethau lleol ychwanegol sydd eu hangen efallai.

Er mwyn bodloni’r angen hwn mae PAVO wedi darparu Gwasanaeth Brocera Trydydd Sector annibynnol ar draws Powys sy’n rhedeg fel rhan o Linell Uniongyrchol Powys; pwynt mynediad unigol Cyngor Sir Powys (CSP) ar gyfer gwasanaeth cyswllt i unigolion sydd angen cefnogaeth y gwasanaethau cymdeithasol.

Erbyn hyn mae PAVO wedi newid enw’r gwasanaeth; ei enw newydd bellach yw’r Gwasanaeth Cydlynu Iechyd a Llesiant Cymunedol ac mae ar gael ar lefel gymunedol mewn llawer o ardaloedd ar draws Powys gan Gysylltwyr Cymunedol lleol, yn ogystal â thrwy bwynt cyswllt canolog Llinell Uniongyrchol Powys.

Beth mae’r Gwasanaeth yn ei gynnig?

Anti poverty lead - National Minimum Wage

Raising awareness of the NMW is fundamental to ensuring that workers get what they are legally entitled to be paid. HMRC know that employers often make genuine mistakes in calculating the NMW rates and are tackling the employer side separately. HMRC are looking to try to raise awareness among minority groups of workers who may not know they are being paid below the NMW or even what to do about it if they are.

HMRC are currently working on a national campaign to raise awareness of the National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage as the rates for both increase on 1 April 2017. The HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy campaign will be running in March.

If you have any questions or want to find out more please email me at Liz.Bowen@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk or phone me on 03000 593 825.

Small Grants Scheme - Brecon Rotary Club

Brecon Rotary Club want to hear from local groups and organisations that can do a lot of good with a little extra money.

The scheme is aimed at encouraging funding applications from local charities and other organisations supporting community life in and around Brecon which could benefit from a modest grant of up to £500.

They intend to be open-minded about the types of activities they will support so long as the project or programme responds to a community need in or within the catchment area of Brecon Rotary Club and meets its criteria on the giving of grants.

It’s for the Brecon area only. (Brecon, Talgarth, Hay, Llyswen) etc
