Success Stories

Cerrig Cornel is a traditional 19th century Welsh farmstead that has been converted to provide a range of separate households with modern interiors. With all our households on one site, Service Users benefit from mutual support, enabling them to develop their social skills and enjoy the benefits of community living with the added security of 24/7 background support. Service Users hold their own tenancies at Cerrig Cornel and are supported to maintain these in preparation for eventual step-down into the community if and when that is considered appropriate. Cerrig Cornel is situated with stunning views of the Dysynni Valley and a rural setting which offers peace and tranquility. Cornel is however just a short bus ride away from to local amenities such as a train station, leisure centre with pool, beach, cinema, medical centre and shops.

Cerrig Cornel is registered to provide services for adults over 18 in the following categories: • Physical Disabilities • Sensory Loss/Impairment • Learning Disabilities • Mental Health problems • Elderly Mentally Infirm (EMI). We provide both 24-hour shared support and one-to-one support for specific identified needs.
