This year, the Forum’s AGM saw the launch of Making Change Happen, our new peer support project funded by the People’s Health Trust Active Communities programme. The aim of the project is to help Disabled people and elders from four of the most disadvantaged areas of Bristol get together to meet new people, share information, and address issues that matter to them.
The project will set up four new peer-support groups across the city 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. Although the groups will be supported by a Development Worker and a local volunteer, the great thing about this project is that the people who join each group will decide what it does, and how it does it.
