Work is progressing on a £1.3m redevelopment of the Craig Hyfryd multi agency substance misuse service base in Holyhead on Anglesey.
The new building will bring a range of organisations together under one roof to provide seamless support to people experiencing drug, alcohol and mental health problems.
Located in the centre of Holyhead, with good access via public transport, the new facility will enable service users to access a range of wrap around services more easily, and facilitate joint working between organisations including our substance misuse service, community mental health team, CAIS, probation, employment services and third sector providers.
Craig Hyfryd is currently a satellite base for our substance misuse and community mental health team staff on Anglesey. However, the size and standard of the current building does not enable our service users to receive the joined up multi-agency support which we know can deliver the best outcomes.
The expanded Craig Hyfryd building will deliver more therapeutic and office space, enabling a better multi-agency approach to delivering care and support in a modern, fit for purpose, therapeutic environment.
During the construction phase, which will begin in late 2019, services currently provided at Craig Hyfryd will be moved to a nearby venue in Holyhead.
We hope to begin delivering a range of services from the expanded Craig Hyfryd building in late 2020.
