Peer Support Social Group Opens for Disabled People in North Somerset

March 1st, 2017

WECIL Peer support is expanding into North Somerset thanks to funding from the big lottery.

We will be holding a launch event on Friday 10th March 2017 at Milton Baptist Church, Baytree Road, BS22 8HJ. This is a drop in event between 11am and 3pm where people can come along to find out more about WECIL. People are welcome to stay as long as they like or just pop in when passing. There will be refreshments available throughout.

We are also planning to hold some drop in consultation events in North Somerset, where people can come along and tell us what they feel would be helpful and be involved with the setting up of social groups in the area. The Peer Support community project is open to anyone aged over 18, who considers themselves disabled or has a condition, physical or mental, which causes them to be marginalised.

Planned Drop in consultations:

Friday 24th March 2017-
Milton Baptist church, Baytree Rd, WsM, BS22 8HJ
11am- 1pm

Thursday 20th April 2017
Nailsea Tithe Barn, Church Lane, Nailsea, BS48 4NG

Thursday 11th May 2017
The Woodborough Inn, Sandford Road, Winscombe, BS25 1HD
