South Denbighshire Community Partnership (SDCP) supported by Citizens Advice Denbighshire (CAD) are pleased to announce that they have been awarded a grant of £349,847 over a four-year period by the Big Lottery Rural Programme.
The grant will enable South Denbighshire Community Partnership & Citizens Advice Denbighshire to work together with the Communities of Corwen, Carrog, Glyndyfrdwy, Llandrillo, Cynwyd, Melin y Wig, Betws Gwerfil Goch, Gwyddelwern and Bryneglwys to reduce isolation, improve wellbeing and increase resilience primarily for older people and those unable to access services.
Specifically this will support existing and develop new social activities and events, improving access to welfare benefits and grants, extending our community transport to include a dial a ride and meal delivery service, whilst at the same time providing opportunities for local people to learn new skills and be involved in the design, running and delivery of services.

Cawl a chan
Cawl a Chan is a social group for people in the South Denbighshire area to come and spend time with people. There is a cost of £1 per person which includes entry, soup and bread, cakes and tea and coffee, as well as brilliant company or why not enjoy a lovely hot, one or two course homemade meal in partnership with our recently launched "Meals On Wheels" service.
This is followed by activities of your choosing. Some play dominos, some play board games, some sing, some just talk and sometimes we have guest speakers and performers in to give talks and presentations. Everyone is welcome to join in with this group and we even have transport available for anyone who has difficulties accessing the public transport network.
Cawl a Chan is on every Tuesday afternoon from 12:30-3:00.
Meals on Wheels Service
We deliver hot, nutritious meals that cater for a variety of diets and conditions in the Edeyrnion area to residents who are elderly, have difficulty with mobility, recovering from accident or illness.
Your Meals on Wheels team member will happily plate your meal if you would like. Our dedicated volunteer drivers provide a welcome and familiar face.
Meals are delivered hot and ready to eat between 11.30am and 2pm. We can’t give you exact delivery times, but generally we’ll be with you at a similar time every day.
We are very proud of both the quality and variety of our balanced, nutritious meals, which adhere to strict national catering guidance. We have a wide selection of meals, suitable for dietary, ethnic, and religious choices. Our menu repeats every four weeks. If necessary, we can create a menu just for you to suit your needs. We refresh our menu twice a year, in winter and in summer.
If you would like to find out more about the service, for yourself or a family member, please contact us.
