Macmillan Torfaen Libraries Health & Wellbeing Information & Support Service

Information and support centres

We provide lots of free information about anything to do with health and wellbeing: Leaflets and other resources that can be taken away from free books, DVDs and CDs that can be borrowed, free internet access, shared reading sessions. We aim to provide a source of support, by helping with all the things people want and need to feel the best that they can. Whether you have a query about local health facilities (local NHS Services, patient groups), or health matters (conditions, treatments, local help & support) or if you just want to eat more healthily or give up smoking this service is for you. Your query doesn’t have to be about you, you may be a care-giver or you may have concerns about a relative or friend, again this service is for you. We will support and listen to people‘s health and wellbeing queries and concerns by offering confidential one-to-one sessions to provide: Someone to talk to, Help with finding and understanding health-related information, Benefits awareness, Sign-posting to other organisations, Awareness of local support groups, Guided access of IT resources and internet sites. These sessions are accessed on a drop-in basis, for more information please contact the Library Health & Wellbeing Officer on 01633 647654 .
