Locality Response

Published: 21 April 2020

Dear Resident,

Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council as setup 9 teams throughout the borough These teams take requests for support from our residents who have no alternative support networks or family and friends near-by. They maybe people who have received a shielding letter from their GP or NHS Wales, or have underlying health conditions, are over 70 or pregnant who are self-isolating. The teams then signpost or match the residents with community based support which includes local businesses, community groups or the voluntary sector. The localities are:

South Tredegar

North Tredegar

Brynmawr

Central Ebbw Vale

South Ebbw Vale

North Ebbw Vale

South Abertillery

North Abertillery

Nantyglo and Blaina

Together we could provide the right support to our communities during this extraordinary period and also to check if you have any specific concerns that you feel are not currently being met.

It would be great to hear from you about the types of issues you are dealing with, any groups you are working with or any residents that you are particularly concerned about so that we can join together to support our communities.

I can also share with you the intelligence we have collated on what is available and a spreadsheet for you is below. BGCBC will be updating the spreadsheet weekly as some services are taken off and others are added. If you know of other support available that we have missed please let BGCBC know..
