The “Hafan Dawel” Mental Health Centre which occupies a small part of the Avon House office complex in Stanwell Road Penarth is to close.
The centre which supports adults with mental health difficulties is one of three centres in the Vale to shut. The others are the Amy Evans Centre in Barry and the facility at Cowbridge Health Centre
All three centres including Hafan Dawel will close in September and will replaced by an expanded facility at Barry Hospital.
Mental health charities have broadly welcomed the decision and say it will lead to a more comprehensive service being provided under one roof
Caroline Chapman, CEO of Vale of Glamorgan Mind, says “The move to a more modern building will provide a better experience for people who live in the Vale of Glamorgan, and with a greater emphasis on a person-centred, recovery-focused service will help those who need it most.”
