Take Part

We’re working to reduce social isolation and improve wellbeing in South Somerset

Being part of a thriving community is important for our health and wellbeing. It creates opportunities to connect with other people, try new things, and share our skills and knowledge. It makes us feel happier, valued and supported.

in partnership with Abri, we're reaching out to residents in Somerset through the Take Part project. Our aim is to empower people to manage their health and wellbeing and look out for one another.

We are also working with other groups and organisations to signpost to reputable information and explore new ways to support our communities.

Here are some of our latest initiatives:

Community Cookbook

We've produced a Community Cookbook to celebrate and share some of our favourite lockdown recipes, with help from Abri residents and in partnership with Abri, Zing Somerset and YMCA Brunel Group.

Free mental health and wellbeing guide

We've produced a new mental health and wellbeing guide for South Somerset residents. It's full of practical advice to help you take care yourself and support others, as well as information on local health and wellbeing support.
