Groundwork North Wales are set to open a brand new Caffi Cyfle site in Wrexham city centre, based at the Wellbeing Hub on Chester Street.


Caffi Cyfle’s new site in Wrexham city centre will be based on Chester Street at the new Wellbeing Hub, which was created by a partnership of Wrexham County Borough Council, AVOW (Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham) and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB).

This new site will cater to both staff and visitors to the Wellbeing Hub, as well as general visitors to Wrexham city centre.

The Wellbeing Hub provides community, health, social care and third sector activities and services in a safe environment. Its aim is to improve access to information, advice and support and deliver preventative and alternative solutions to care and support.
