Do you want to find groups and support in the community that might help you improve your health and wellbeing? You can find lots of local support from charities to social groups in the Health Connections Mendip Directory.
The Mendip Disability Forum meets four times a year at a venue in Mendip and provides 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.
A hot meal is provided at a small cost to members. Transport is provided free for those unable to use their own or public transport. Care and Communication support can also be provided. If you are interested in attending their next meeting, please contact Shannon Tarr.
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.
