Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone from the team at Somewhere House Somerset. Over the festive period, our team have continued to support over 120 people each week. We are able to do this, because of the generous support of the public, our funders and our fundraising committee who organise events throughout the year. Thank you from us all.

To that end, our first coffee and chat for 2022 is coming up. See the flyer below, it would be great to see you! All are welcome!


Wishing you a Happy Christmas

On behalf of all the team at Somewhere House Somerset, we would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Christmas.

This year has once again presented us with huge challenges but on behalf of the board, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has got involved in fundraising, our coffee and chat and community events.

The sheet human spirit we have witnessed has been incredible. Thank you to Burnhamonsea.com for their continued support, the volunteers, our counsellors and you, the public who make the charity possible.

We want to hear from you

We’re always looking for ways to fundraise for the charity. In fact, do you have a way that you can raise money for our charity? If so, we would love to hear from you.

Some of the ways we have been supported have included head shaves, half marathons, sky dives, bike rides.

The more original the better. As we head towards the end of another challenging year, we continue to see large numbers of referrals for people needing help. So can you help them and fundraise? We can set up pages for you, provide t-shirts etc.

Do get in touch – email info@somewherehousesomerset.org

Thank you

A huge thank you to everyone who attended last weeks xmas coffee and chat. We raised over £600 and this will go towards continuing to help and support those in need of our support in the local community.

The next Coffee and Chat is coming in 2022. We are having a break in January but will return in February! The flyer is below please share it with your family, friends, colleagues or anyone you know who might benefit from being part of a community event. Entry and coffee is free.

Tales of Adventure! This is worth attending!

I am Lewis and in 2018 I had the crazy idea of running a 3000km trail the length of New Zealand.

The stunning Te Araroa encompasses beautiful beaches, pristine rainforests, mesmerising mountains and active volcanoes.

On January 6th, 2020, supported by Jill Male and Phil Martin, this crazy idea became reality.

‘I Tried to Run Really Far’, tells the story of this epic adventure. This will be an openly emotional account, sparing no detail of the gruelling difficulties – the failures as well as triumphs – involved in such an undertaking.

I set out to push my personal boundaries, raise money for a charity dear to my heart, and inspire others to find progress in their lives. Did I succeed? Come along to find out.

By buying a ticket and coming along to listen to this adventurous tale you are helping to raise money for our fantastic charity – Somewhere House Somerset. For more information on our charity please use the following link – https://somewherehousesomerset.org

DATE: Friday 12th November 2021
TIME: Doors Open at 7.00pm for 7.30pm Start
TICKETS: £10.00 per person


Hannah’s run the Marathon!

Recently featured on Burnham on Sea.com Hannah Jackson took part recently in the virtual London Marathon and completed it in under 6 hours. A truly amazing effort and raising over £1000 for the charity!

To celebrate this, she chatted with one of our trustees Rob about her experience, mental health and life!
