The Mendip Disability Forum is a well-established group that meets four times a year at Tor Leisure Centre in Glastonbury. The Forum provides an opportunity for disabled people and carers living in the Mendip area to be consulted and informed on issues from various 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. Transport is provided free for those unable to use their own or public transport. Care and communication support can also be provided.
Last year, Compass Disability Services applied to the Big Lottery Fund to enable the Forum to continue and grow its membership. We are delighted to have been successful with this application and look forward to continuing to work closely with the Forum in future.
Richard Pitman CEO of Compass Disability Services said “The Forum is an excellent opportunity for disabled people and carers to have their say, we are delighted to be able to support the Forum in its future direction”.
Future dates for the Forum are:
Wednesday 7 September 11am until 3pm
Wednesday 14 December 11am until 3pm
