Andrew Mitchell and Councillor Meirion Jenkins recently visited Embec Care Limited, an organisation that promotes wellbeing and independence through its support for people suffering from Dementia related conditions. It also provides Domiciliary and Day Respite for carers in need of support.
Embec Care works closely with another organisation, Challenge, which provides young volunteers to help at the site and participate in fundraising activities.
Mr Mitchell and Councillor Jenkins heard how Embec Care has transformed the lives of many local people and had the opportunity of meeting a number of constituents working with Embec Care.
Andrew Mitchell MP said “Embec Care provides an important service to the local community. I am impressed by the dedication of the staff and volunteers who contribute so much to ensuring that Embec Care reaches as many people as possible. Small community projects, such as this, are key to promoting a strong community spirit”.
Director of Embec Care, Dawn Jackson, said “we are extremely happy to be recognised for our contribution to the local community in relation to care and carer support, and believe this is a positive step towards providing a point of contact within the local community and will enhance local working relationships.”
