Tenby library and its dedicated staff has achieved the Bronze Investors in Carers Award.
Investors in Carers is a regional partnership quality standard scheme designed to develop focus and improve services’ awareness. It also enhances the help and support that can be offered to people caring for their family and friends throughout West Wales.
Library assistant Christine Brown said: “At Tenby library are proud to offer support to those who help and care for the people they love.
“Achieving this Bronze Award means we are more aware of support available and better equipped to provide it.”
Investors in Carers is a collaboration project delivered through Hywel Dda University Health Board with support from Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion county councils and various Third Sector partners.
Library Development Officer Laura Evans said that being part of the Investors in Carers scheme was important to the library service.
“It shows that people should not feel alone and isolated in their role as unpaid carers” she explained.
“There are lots of groups and services that can help. The libraries have a range of resources including a collection of books specifically aimed at carers, a ‘Library at Home’ service and free use of our computers.”
