Planters outside CRI Chapel - Full of yellow flowers.

The former Chapel at Cardiff Royal Infirmary is a Grade II listed building which has been transformed into a vibrant health and wellbeing facility for local residents. A new name, Capel I Bawb has been chosen through a public engagement process.

This has been a partnership project with funding from the Integrated Care Fund, CAVUHB and Cardiff Council and is now home to a new health and wellbeing library, Council services including self-service book loans, open access PCs, facilitated activities hosted by a Community Liaison Officer, meeting spaces and an Aroma Café. Public access toilets are now available in the community spaces including a fully accessible WC and baby changing facilities.

It will provide a valuable resource where patients, service users, carers and the local community can be signposted to relevant and easily accessible information and advice, social learning and recreational activities. It will have a key role in the H&WC@CRI, providing a focus for information, advice and signposting with the aim of empowering people to manage their health and wellbeing.
