Llys Awelon Extra Care Housing Scheme

Llys Awelon is an extra care housing scheme established in 2011 by Grŵp Cynefin in partnership with Denbighshire County Council. The scheme provides a home, support and care services for people over 60.

The original plan of 21 flats is being updated and extended with an additional 35 units. The project involves the complete redevelopment of the existing Llys Awelon to create a modern, low-carbon, purpose-built scheme to meet the needs of older people in the Denbighshire area.

The development is progressing well. Click here to see photos of the construction work so far.
