Community and Charity links

The Cathedral is part of the Safe Places Scheme operated by Avon & Somerset Constabulary. Members of the Cathedral’s welcoming team are trained to provide advice concerning local support agencies.

The cathedral is committed to supporting community groups which serve people facing challenging circumstances. The cathedral’s charity donation point provides a dedicated space for support agencies, both to raise awareness of the group’s aims, and to raise funds for that work. The cathedral website may also feature the week’s good cause to give the charity additional promotion. Local charities, and regional branches of national agencies, thus have the opportunity to engage with the large numbers of visitors to the cathedral.

Monday 6th January: Headway Somerset

We are a unique organisation helping Somerset residents to live as independent a life as possible after brain injury. While promoting a wider understanding of all aspects of brain injury and provide information, support and services for people with brain injury, we also assist in accessing and signposting to other services. Not least is helping with sometimes much needed respite care for family and carers.
