Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB), Wrexham Council and AVOW have joined forces to create a new Wellbeing Hub in Wrexham city centre.
The Wellbeing Hub aims to make it quicker and easier for people to access information, providing a range of services under one roof, helping to prevent illness and encourage people to lead longer, happier lives.
With easy access to information and advice as well as accessible spaces and facilities, the Wellbeing Hub is perfect for a range of community groups to use.
Some community groups and individuals have had the opportunity to try the facilities before the official opening.
Robin Ranson, from BCUHB Health Improvement Team, said: “I have been fortunate enough to have a tour around the Wrexham Wellbeing Hub, while attending a recent meeting in one of its community rooms. The building looks fantastic, is very inviting and is located in a handy central Wrexham location with great transport links, as well as easy walking and wheelchair access. The rooms for hire look super and we are very keen to run our Health Improvement Programmes from there, as they meet our needs of a kitchen for our Cooking Programme. There is also space for exercise classes, as well as tables and chairs for our educational sessions. We can see ourselves making great use of this amazing facility that we are so lucky to have in Wrexham, and recommend others come to see what potential it has for their groups/services.”
Dynamic Wrexham said: “Our children and young people have been to the new Wellbeing Hub at Crown buildings and got to test out their amazing new sensory room and outdoor play area and it did not disappoint. What a fantastic space. We feel very honoured to be able to test run the facilities before they officially open.”
Phil, a father of two young boys said: “The Wellbeing Hub is an amazing space for families. The sensory room and outdoor play area was a great hit with my children and we are looking forward to seeing what activities are on offer in the future.”
The Wellbeing Hub will officially open on Wednesday, October 5th from 2pm – 5pm. Members of the public are invited to come along to see what the hub can offer. There will be demonstrations, information stalls, tai chi taster sessions, story time, sensory room, outdoor play area and fun activities.
