DENBIGHSHIRE County Council is moving forward with proposals for the re-opening of a service for people with disabilities.

The proposal to reopen Meifod, based in Denbigh, as a council service, with additional investment, was recommended by the council’s Scrutiny Committee at a meeting on Thursday, October 14.

The recommendation, which was based on input from officers, a Task and Finish Group and feedback from those using the service, will now be discussed further by the council’s cabinet.

Meifod, which produces garden furniture and provides in-house daytime activity services for adults with complex disabilities, is currently closed following the Covid-19 pandemic.

Individuals normally supported at Meifod are currently being supported in different ways wherever possible, this includes with community outings and outdoor activities.

Cllr Bobby Feeley, the council’s lead member for well-being and independence, said: “We know how much the community values Meifod and we are pleased to be moving forward with these proposals towards a safe reopening of the service.

“We will continue to work closely with the service users, their families and stakeholders moving forward."
