Our Peer Support Community have been nominated for the Happy, Healthy Bristol Award 2017 as part of this years Voscurs

November 2nd, 2017

We are delighted to have been nominated for Happy, Healthy Bristol Award 2017 as part of this years Voscurs. Our Peer Support Community is a group open to all disabled people in Bristol and the surrounding areas. They deserve to win the award as they are a great peer led support network who have worked together to dramatically reduce social isolation and promote wellbeing by creating a strong and active community through a series of events and regular activities.
They don’t just find opportunities for people to get out of the house, they give people a reason to go out and get involved. To be able to run a variety of opportunities the Peer Support project has the advantage of focusing on peoples’ interests rather than what they feel able to do. The community encourages inclusivity by creating a space that supports disabled people to get involved in something because they want to.

Please help us to win this award by taking a few minutes to vote for WECIL here https://www.voscur.org/content/happy-healthy-bristol-award-2017-who-gets-your-vote
