It’s good to talk

Our teams have been phoning tenants to see how we can help them during this crisis, they have managed to speak to over 1,300 people that are aged over 70.

We are continuing to support residents in our sheltered schemes, in addition to this our teams are supporting 43 people in the community that need support.

There is a small number of people who we have been unable to get hold off but we will continue to try and contact them.

The calls have been welcomed and it’s been great that communities are uniting together in these challenging times and are helping their neighbours. This demonstrates what a great place Blaenau Gwent is.

Soon we will be contacting people that are under 70 years old and have been identified that they may need support during this crisis and helping us to do this we have joined forces with GAVO (Gwent Association of Voluntary Organisations).

If you or anyone you know is in need of support or assistance please give our team a call on 0300 303 1717 or drop us an email to
