Listening to a consultant from the health system say that the social care system is broken and is causing the issues for the health service to safely discharge patients back home makes me feel very unhappy knowing how much we have tried in supporting people to be better, leave hospital and be safe at home. […]
What with all the strikes and the pressures getting to boiling point for our NHS Nurses over their pay and working conditions in being short staffed and working long days every day, let’s just spare a thought to our Social Care teams who have been trying to survive for years on low pay, lack of […]

We have exciting opportunities to volunteer with our Companions Team.
If you can give a little of your time, you can make a real difference to someone.
We have 2 roles within the Team, as a Telephone Companion or a Loose Limbs Group Leader………………..very different roles that both have a huge impact on people’s lives.
We are recruiting Telephone Companions to join our Team. Our Companions are a lifeline for those feeling lonely and isolated or simply in need of someone to have a chat with. We are looking for empathetic, positive people with a good sense of humour to help brighten up someone’s day or just to be there when somebody needs someone to listen. We are growing and developing the Team so that we have Companions available 7 days a week and as a Telephone Companion, you can choose a time to suit you and work from wherever you are.
Our Loose Limbs groups are looking for volunteers to lead the sessions. These fun social groups mix music, movement and a natter over a cuppa. The seated exercise is suitable for all, and our relaxed and friendly attitude creates a positive and welcoming environment. We are recruiting Leaders for our existing groups but also looking to support new groups to start up. If you think your local community would benefit from Loose Limbs sessions, please get in touch with us.
We are a Welsh Language preschool based in Ysgol y Bannau, Penlan, Brecon LD3 9SR and we have 2 rooms
Cylch Meithrin Room for 2-3 Year Olds &
Bobl Bach Room for 3-5 Year Olds
In the Cylch Meithrin Room, we follow “Planning in the Moment” which means we do not plan activities in advance – we allow the children the freedom and choice to decide what they are going to do and then we build upon their interests and choices to extend the play and add to their learning.
We set up invitations to play which are based upon the interests children have shown and which stimulate the children’s curiosity and which they are able to explore in any way they wish – there is no specific end goal.
The Cylch Meithrin Room has lots of different areas………………….
Within the Bobl Bach Room, “In the Moment Planning” is followed to allow the children to develop independence. We aim to give the children the choice of what their learning journey looks like and allow their voice to be heard.
The Bobl Bach Room also has lots of different areas…………………………
We also have use of the big field in the school which we go to as often as we can and the children have so much fun exploring!
We run a Holiday Club for children aged between 2 and 11 years old. Dates and times available depend on demand so please contact us if you would like your child to attend. Check out our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Clwb-y-Bannau-1804726573175487
We also run Dwylo Bach – Singing and Signing in Welsh for pre-school children and their adults. The aim of the group is to introduce the Welsh language to families in an interesting and fun way. Contact us if you would like your child to attend.
