Cymorth Gyda Chostau Byw

Rydym i gyd yn teimlo effaith y cynnydd yng nghostau byw ar hyn o bryd. I lawer ohonom, mae hyn wedi dod yn fwy na chynnydd mewn costau byw - mae wedi dod yn argyfwng costau byw. Ni ddylai unrhyw un orfod dewis rhwng gwres neu fwyta, ond mae hyn yn dod yn realiti dyddiol i lawer.

 

Mae arian ac iechyd meddwl yn aml yn gysylltiedig - gall poeni am arian effeithio ar eich iechyd meddwl, a gall iechyd meddwl gwael wneud rheoli'ch arian yn anodd. Gall poeni am arian arwain at deimladau o bryder, straen, iselder neu ddicter.

 

Hoffai Fwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol Aneurin Bevan helpu mewn unrhyw ffordd y gallwn. Felly, rydym wedi creu tudalen wefan a sefydlwyd yn benodol i gynnig gwybodaeth am y gwasanaethau cymorth sydd ar gael yng Ngwent i helpu'r rhai sy'n ei chael hi'n anodd.

 

Mae tudalen y wefan newydd yn rhoi gwybodaeth am:

  • Problemau Ariannol – Help gyda Phroblemau Dyled, Arian a Chymorth Iechyd Meddwl, Dyled a achosir gan Gam-drin / Rheoli
  • Bwyta'n Dda – Sgiliau Maeth am Oes, Y Cynllun Cychwyn Iach (Cael Cymorth i Brynu Bwyd a Llaeth), Banciau Bwyd Lleol
  • Cymorth yn eich Ardal - Mae gan bob Awdurdod Lleol yn ardal ein Bwrdd Iechyd lawer o gefnogaeth ar gael yn eich cymuned leol - ni waeth beth sydd angen help arnoch. Lleolwch ardal eich Awdurdod Lleol (Cyngor) isod i ddod o hyd i adnoddau yn agos atoch chi.

 

I'r rhai sydd angen cymorth, ewch i'n gwefan: Cymorth Gyda Chostau Byw

Support with the Cost of Living

We're all feeling the impact of the current rise in the cost of living. For many of us, this has become more than a cost of living rise- it's become a cost of living crisis.

 

No one should have to choose between heating or eating, but this is becoming the daily reality for many.

 

Money and mental health are often linked - worrying about money can affect your mental health, and poor mental health can make managing your money difficult. Worrying about money may lead to feelings of anxiety, stress, depression, anger.

 

Aneurin Bevan University Health Board wish to help in any way we can. Therefore, we have created a website page specifically set up to provide information regarding support services available in Gwent to help those who are struggling.

 

The new website page provides information on:

  • Money Problems – Help with Debt Problems, Money and Mental Health Support, Debt caused by Abuse / Control
  • Eating Well – Nutrition Skills for Life, The Healthy Start Scheme (Get Help to Buy Food and Milk), Local Food Banks
  • Support in your Area - Each Local Authority within our Health Board area has lots of support available in your local community - no matter what you need help with. Locate your Local Authority (Council) area below to find resources near you.

Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment

Published: Monday 6 April 2020

Your Future, Your Say 15/02/2020 - 10/04/2020


To speak with the Council, please telephone 01495 354600
E-mail: housing@blaenau-gwent.gov.uk
or visit the Housing Advice Centre, 20 Church Street, Ebbw Vale, Gwent, NP23 4AL

 

Part 3 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 requires local authorities in Wales to undertake a Gypsy and Traveller accommodation assessment and, where an unmet need is identified, to make provision for residential site pitches. We therefore need to talk to the Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople communities to find out whether your family needs a residential pitch, house or transit site.

The definition of the target community as it appears in Section 108 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 is:

Persons of a nomadic habit of life, whatever their race or origin, including:

  • persons who, on grounds only of their own or their family’s or dependant’s educational or health needs or old age, have ceased to travel temporarily or permanently, and

  • members of an organized group of travelling show people or circus people (whether or not travelling together as such); and

  • all other persons with a cultural tradition of nomadism or of living in a mobile home

The assessment is meant to be carried out every 5 years but Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council are conducting ours earlier in relation to the development of the Local Development Plan (LDP).

We are hoping to talk to as many families and individuals as possible before the 23rd March 2020 in order to produce a robust evaluation of need in Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council. Information collected during the survey will be used to determine how many pitches are needed within the county, both now and in the future. Any personal data gathered will be held under our privacy notice which is available on the Council’s website.

The GTAA will be carried out in accordance with statutory guidance issued by Welsh Government available at: Gypsy and traveller accommodation assessments: guidance.

If you have any further questions about the assessment, or if you would like to take part in the survey, please email housing@blaenau-gwent.gov.uk or telephone 01495 354600.
