Compass Wellbeing reopens and is offering exclusive sessions

Compass Wellbeing, part of Compass Disability Services, has been closed since March 2020 and only reopened on the 1st June 2021.

Based on the Belvedere Trading Estate, Compass Wellbeing is now open from 10am until 5pm, Monday to Friday offering exclusive use sessions in our Hydropool and Sensory Room, with our Wellbeing Café open to all.

Michelle Edwards from Compass Wellbeing said: “We know that parents are desperate to get socialising with their tots, many of whom, born during lockdown, have not had the opportunity to get out and about as they would have previously. Thanks to Awards for All funding we are relaunching our Stay and Play sessions, exclusively for tots under 5, on Monday 5th July 2021, With a great range of toys and books for tots to explore, including access to our amazing sensory room. With double the amount of room, we have plenty of space to play and let off steam and for adults to safely social distance. Numbers are currently limited so booking is essential.”

You have seen how thousands of deaf and disabled people across the UK have had on their lives impacted by the pandemic. Most have said their disability had worsened and often vital, medical appointments had been cancelled.

Michelle adds: “During lockdown, in response to the closure of East Street, the Taunton Disability Action Group established on Facebook to raise concerns about this and other issues that affect disabled people in Taunton. We are delighted to launch the first face to face meeting of the Taunton Disability Action Café at Compass Wellbeing on the first Wednesday of every month, starting on the 7th July 2021. Free to attend,  a very informal, relaxed café style event with no agenda, just an opportunity to meet others, share experiences, make friends and discuss local issues that affect disabled people locally. Drop in and join the conversation.”
