Thrill in Rhyl

Rhyl Golf Club welcomed the microbus on its first stop in North Wales - more here. Hafal's supporters in Denbighshire highlighted the importance of supporting families and carers of people with a serious mental illness. We are concerned that services for carers may be vulnerable to cuts on the grounds that they are "secondary" to services for patients but this would be both unfair and a false economy - carers provide a substantial part of the support needed for patients in the community and well-targeted services can enhance that crucial role to everybody's advantage.

Hafal's 10 Point Plan for carers, based on the experience of over 400 experienced carers, can be seen here.
