How to use Dewis Cymru


There are different ways you can use Dewis Cymru to help you think about your well-being, and work out what matters to you.

So if you think you might need some help with your well-being but you’re not sure what matters to you the most, have a browse through the website. We’ve got pages about being well, being social, being at home, being safe, managing your money, children and families and looking after someone.

On most of the pages you’ll see a magnifying glass (towards the top right of the page) – click on it and we’ll tell you about services near you that can help you with whatever you’ve just been reading about.

If you already know what you’re looking for, use the search on the left of the home page and we’ll tell you what information we have and what’s available to help you in your area.

For example if you want to know how to get your home adapted for a wheelchair user, just type in ‘wheelchair’. Dewis Cymru will search for information that will be useful to wheelchair users and tell you about the people, groups, and services in your area that might be able to help you.

You might be doing all this for someone else, perhaps someone who isn’t on the internet. So Dewis Cymru makes it really easy to print things off, or to email the results of your search to another friend or family member who is on the internet.

What if I can’t find what I’m looking for?

Occasionally, Dewis Cymru might not be able to find what you are looking for, but if that happens it will tell you about someone in your local authority who you can contact to see if they can help you.

And remember, the resource directory is getting bigger all the time so it’s worth coming back from time to time to see what’s new in your area.
