Life on a low income

A recent report by Age Cymru has cast new light on what life is like for older people in poverty in Wales. In Wales, an estimiated 84,000 older people live in poverty. This situation is preventable. Up to a third of available financial support for older people goes unclaimed but our benefits advisers are helping to change this.

Recycling

If you have trouble getting to a bottle bank or civic amenity site and can’t recycle your glass, our recycling volunteers can help you.  They can support and guide you on what to put into the blue and black bags they will remove your glass for recycling. We can also help recycle other items such as light bulbs, batteries and other small items.  This is a free service.
