|Bristol Area Stroke Foundation
The Bristol Area Stroke Foundation (BASF) works across Bristol and South Gloucestershire supporting people affected by stroke. We are a local charity that can help you through some of the difficult times that you may face after a stroke. Our professional staff and volunteers are there to offer guidance, support & counselling to you and your family during rehabilitation and we understand the many problems you may face as a consequence of the stroke.
We will focus on the issues that are important to you helping you to re-build your life after a stroke. We support carers as well as the person who has had the stroke. We take special interest in emotional wellbeing following a stroke as this can have a significant influence on your recovery and rehabilitation. We think everyone should be offered help to overcome emotional & psychological problems following stroke.

|South Gloucestershire Disability Action Group
The group supports people with disabilities throughout the South Gloucestershire area. We meet bi-monthly in various venues in the South Glos. Area. We arrange community transport for our members to get to our meetings, when required.
At meetings we have speakers on subjects of interest to those with disabilities. Members often get advice and help with problems they’ve been coping with. We also discuss many subjects among ourselves while enjoying refreshments. We try to help sort out people’s problems and have been able to get the Council to install drop kerbs to help members with wheelchairs and mobility scooters. We also co-operate with members of the Council on projects, such as parks where mobility and disability access projects are being installed or updated. We also organisation occasional trips.
Our group produces a quarterly newsletter, which goes out to members as well as many people who are unable to attend our meetings. The newsletter contains many items of interest to those with disabilities.
