Making Change Happen our peer support project run by and for Disabled and older residents in Bristol. We meet monthly in four different areas of Bristol so that, in one area or another, there is a meet up almost every week.
The groups are open to Disabled people, older people and people living with mental distress or physical health difficulties. People who are isolated or feel left out are especially welcome .
People who have attended our drop-ins have said how important it is for Disabled and older people to get together to share knowledge, support each other, and talk about the barriers they face in their communities. We have talked about all sorts of issues including access to local transport and services, ageing and disability, direct payments and benefits.
Please join us at one of our drop-ins this May to meet new people, have a say on the issues that matter to you, and talk about how to make change happen in your area of Bristol.
