Wales: £13m for new wellbeing hub in Cardiff

20 March 2020

A £13m investment to fund a new wellbeing hub in Cardiff has been announced by the Welsh Government.

The new centre will bring together and build on existing advice, support and education services provided by the local authority and voluntary sector at the ‘Powerhouse Hub’, and incorporate the Llanedeyrn health centre and GP practice.

Construction will start this summer for completion by early 2022. The hub will provide a range of specialised health clinics including baby clinics, mental health services, support services for children and younger people, smoking cessation advice and antenatal care.

It will also house community rooms and an advice area, where health, local authority and third-sector groups can provide education and wellbeing services, as well as relocating the existing community café in a new part of the building.
