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.
Compass Disability Services aim to enable and empower disabled people and carers to have independence, choice and control in their lives. Members have an opportunity to give their views on issues by attending consultation events, discussion groups and forums. 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.
South & East Somerset Motor Neurone Disease Support Group The branch is run entirely by volunteers and aims to provide the best possible support to local people with MND, their families, and carers. The Branch does in fact cover the Mendip region and if there is anyone interested in finding out more about what we have to offer they are always welcome. We provide support for people with MND and their family, either by direct contact with them at home and/or by joining one of the support groups we have running at the Palmers garden centre, Yeovil. There are also various other events running throughout the year and the committee meets every other month. Call first to check meeting details. If you live in Mendip, there is no Mendip group at present but the organisers are open to restarting a Mendip group, do make contact to discuss.
