Looking After Yourself During Tough Times

As another National Lockdown takes effect, hopefully the last one we thought it might be useful to share some of the guidance that has been issued around mental health and wellbeing. Looking after ourselves is key in these challenging times. You can see the guidance by clicking here

As always, we are here to support you too. You can self refer on this website and we have a team of trained counsellors available to talk things through.

We Are Here To Support You

Firstly, happy Christmas to you all from the team at Somewhere House Somerset. As we enter tougher, tighter restrictions – remember that our service continues for the local community and those who are in need of support.

Remember you can refer yourself by completing the self referral form on this website. Once you have completed the form, one of our team will make contact and arrange for you to have an assessment with one of our fully trained counselling team. All we ask from you is that you attend your appointments and make a donation of what you can afford towards your sessions.

In a time where perhaps people feel cut off and isolated, our service is here to support those in need.

Buy a Chocolate Wreath and raise money for Somewhere House Somerset

One of our clients is very kindly making Chocolate Wreaths to raise money for the charity. What a great idea and everyone loves chocolate right? Please drop us an email to info@somewherehousesomerset.org if you wish to purchase one! Upto 30 chocolates per wreath. £5-£8 is the cost with proceeds going to the charity

Thank you Avon and Somerset Police Community Trust

Massive thanks to Avon and Somerset Police Coomunity Federation for once again supporting our charity. Their generous grant as always, goes directly to helping the most vulnerable in our local community.

Huge thanks on behalf of the SWHS Team to all who made this grant possible x

Xmas Jumper Day

This week there was an xmas jumper day held at a local care home. There were ready made ones (from the shop) and custom made ones patched together with the aid of a sewing machine – and there was even one jumper that had it’s own set of lights!

Needless to say that even in difficult circumstances this year, it was a lot of fun and well supported. Thanks to all those who donated so generously, the total raised was over £100 – the proceeds of which go directly to helping those in need of support.

Thank you Western Power Distribution

Massive thank you to Michael and the team at Western Power Distribution for the £750 grant award this week.

During these challenging times when many are struggling, it’s wonderful to see that human spirit and support is very much still there.

This funding goes directly to helping those in need and from them and us, a massive thank you!

We can support you in these tough times….

During these tough times, everyone has had to adapt and many of us have struggled with isolation as a result of the pandemic.

Somewhere House Somerset has continued and will do so regardless, to offer support to anyone who needs help. To meet demand we have just recruited 3 more fully qualified counsellors to join our existing team of professionals.

Referring yourself is easy! Just fill out the ‘Self Referral Form’ on our website and we will be in touch. Don’t worry about the cost of your counselling – we ask you simply for a donation that you can afford.

Another Epic Fundraising Effort!

Once again, we have another generous donation from someone raising funds for the charity. Tim Hector (pictured in the high vis attire) ran a Marathon earlier in the year and all the money he raised was for Somewhere House Somerset.

Running a Marathon is tough enough but the support Tim has given to the charity with his donation is hugely impressive and appreciated. As always the money raised goes directly to helping those in need. Thank you Tim!

Thank you Churchfield Church School!

Thank you Churchfield Church School – Burnadette, her team and of course all the pupils for your very generous donation of £350.

It’s much appreciated and here is a pic from the handover ceremony, outside and with masks on!

Thank you from all at Somewhere House Somerset x
