On 18 December our Chief Executive, Aileen Edwards, was on BBC Radio Bristol’s popular Breakfast Show talking to presenter Emma Britton about securing funding for our new North Somerset Wellbeing Service until July 2020.  Earlier this year we raised concerns that cuts in funding to mental health support in the area could lead to an increase in suicides.  We are now delighted that this funding has been secured so we can continue providing this support.

 

Emma also spoke to Andy from Clevedon, one of our peer volunteers, about how the service has helped him with his anxiety.
