A new centre that offers support for local residents who may be experiencing issues with substance misuse has been officially opened in Bridgend. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Celtic Court health and wellbeing centre, which actually opened its doors on Tremains Road earlier this year, is a purpose-built base for a wide range of support services offered by the Welsh Centre for Action on Dependency and Addiction, the Community Drug and Alcohol Team ABMU and the Bridgend Involvement Group. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones joined Councillor Mel Nott OBE, the Leader of Bridgend County Borough Council, and Councillor Richard Young, the Mayor of Bridgend County Borough, to declare the new facility officially open. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Council Leader Mel Nott OBE said: “Celtic Court has been deliberately located in a convenient and appropriate town centre location, and was designed and put together as a clinically-bespoke building by the council’s Built Environment team using funding provided by the Welsh Government. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“More than £2.4 million has been invested in this very worthwhile refurbishment project to create an all-new health and wellbeing centre which is already benefiting local people who are in need of specialist support. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

“I’d like to thank the Welsh Government for providing the funding for this facility, our Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board and third sector partners who are already hard at work here, and everyone else who has played a role in making the new centre a reality.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
