There has been such a great response to a new extra care housing development in Wrexham that additional drop-in day events have been arranged to help people find out more.

We’ve already held a series of drop-in events for Maes y Dderwen, the Extra Care Housing Scheme on Grosvenor Road, developed in partnership between Wrexham Council, the Welsh Government and the Pennaf Housing Group.

The £10.5m Maes y Dderwen extra care scheme provides an alternative to residential care, and is specifically designed for local people aged 60 or over who wish to live independently in a home of their own with the peace of mind of 24-hour access to care and support.


Interest in the new development has proven so popular that we’ve arranged another series of drop-in information events at Wrexham Museum, Regent Street.

The upcoming dates for the information event are:

  • Monday, April 16 – 10am to 4pm
  • Saturday, April 21 – 11am to 2pm
  • Monday, April 23 – 10am to 4pm
  • Monday, April 30 – 10am to 4pm

Photographs, plans, a short film, brochures and fact sheets on Maes y Dderwen will be available, and a representative from the Pennaf Group will also be on hand to answer questions from any interested parties.

“Interest is building up”

Cllr Joan Lowe, Lead Member for Adult Social Care at Wrexham Council, said: “Interest is building up for Maes y Dderwen and we’re very glad to say that news of the development has already attracted some very positive feedback – but we know some members of the public may be considering Extra Care as an option for their future housing, and we wanted to hold further information events to make sure they could get all the information they need.”

Steve Robinson, Extra Care Services Manager with Pennaf added: “Maes y Dderwen has been specifically designed to enable people to live well, in a home of their own, with access to support that can adapt as their needs change.

The scheme is an excellent option for those with a wide range of support needs, from those just looking for a little extra help to those with more complex requirements.”

Anyone interested can just pop in on one of the drop in sessions, or can contact us by phoning 0800 183 5757 or emailing

Maes y Dderwen has been funded with support from the Welsh Government’s Social Housing Grant  (SHC) and Vibrant and Viable Places funding (VVP) secured by Wrexham County Borough Council, along with private finance arranged by the Pennaf Housing Group.
