NEWCIS is the largest provider of carer services in Wales – delivering information, one to one support, advocacy, training and counselling to carers who provide unpaid support to family or friends living in North East Wales. NEWCIS has over 12,000 carers registered to the service. We are constantly striving to raise awareness of our services in order to reach out to even more people. Many carers are struggling with a multitude of issues including access to information, maintaining a work/caring balance, red tape and coping with loss, as well as the physical and mental challenges involved. Our head office is in Mold and we cover the Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham area.

Our aim is to further develop our services for carers and volunteers and ensure that the one-to-one support that is so valued is maintained.
