Compass Disability Network
The Compass Disability Network is a Network of disabled people, their carers and organisations that represent disabled people, which works to improve access and inclusion to services and facilities.
Members have an opportunity to give their views on a range of issues that are important to them by attending consultation events, discussion groups and forums or completing questionnaires. Views are fed back to organisations and agencies that develop services such as local authorities and health services.
It’s free to join and members can participate as much or as little as they like. You can participate in meetings and events or just receive our quarterly magazine The Networker to find out what’s going on in the Network. Being part of the Network is a great way to meet other people in a similar situation.

SNA – Somerset Neurological Alliance Directory
A guide to neurological services in Somerset. The SNA is a combination of Neurological Charities for further information please go to their website.
We are a unique organisation helping Somerset residents to live as independent a life as possible after brain injury. While promoting a wider understanding of all aspects of brain injury and provide information, support and services for people with brain injury, we also assist in accessing and signposting to other services. Not least is helping with sometimes much needed respite care for family and carers. We provide social and cognitive rehabilitation for adults with brain injury and support and respite for their families through our three Brain Injury Outreach Units based in Bridgwater, Henton and Yeovil.
