Disabled and Older people Making Change Happen!

The Bristol Disability Equality Forum has launched a new project: ‘Making Change Happen’. This is a two-year peer support project, led by Disabled people and older residents. It is funded by The People’s Health Trust Active Communities Programme.

About Making Change Happen

The project will set up four new groups across Bristol and each group will meet once a month. The aim is to spread the four monthly meet-ups so that, in one area or another, there is a meet up almost every week.

What each group does will be decided by its members. They might want to socialise and meet new people; share experiences, advice and information; discover support and activities in their area; or address local issues. Whatever they decide to focus on, each group will be supported by a Forum Development Worker and at least one local volunteer.

Who can attend?

The groups are open to Disabled people, older people and people who live with mental distress or a physical health condition.

When and Where?

Our South Bristol group meets in the Café at the Gatehouse Centre on Hareclive Road. Our next meet-up is on Friday 26th April. 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.

The groups are free to attend. For more information contact Mike Steel mike.bristoldef@gmail.com or call 0117 914 0528
