The Mendip Disability Forum meets four times a year at Pilton Working Men’s Club and Village Hall, providing an opportunity for disabled people and carers living in the area to be consulted and informed on a range of issues from different organisations. Speakers are invited to provide information on services giving members an opportunity to raise their views. The meeting runs from 10:30 to 3:30 and usually comprises two visiting speakers, a break for lunch and a social activity.
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. 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. We provide a hospital liaison service. Our project Making Headway matches volunteers with clients.
*During covid we are supporting clients using zoom meetings, phone calls and activity packs until our normal services resume*
