New Interview With A Trustee Coming Soon!

Look out for a new interview with one of the board of trustees, Mike which is being recorded today and will soon be live on the website and socials. There is a special guest appearance too, so look out for him as well!

During the Covid-19 crisis that has enveloped the world, we have tried to bring messages of hope to our local community and reassure you that here at least, support is available should you need it.

An Ode to Covid

One of our counsellors wrote this…

I have no other option Covid 19 is to blame,For buying things I will never use much to my eternal shame.

Now I haven’t got lots of money, Covid  has seen to that, but it hasn’t stopped me from buying a purple yoga Mat!

Now for those of you who know me you’ll know I’m not lithe and fit,I’m not a jogger or a walker, I don’t use my fit bit.

I’m happy to sit on the sofa and watch the world go by,I have prime, Netflix and even premium sky! 

And in these dark days of Covid when I need a friendly face, It’s easy to order from Amazon especially things I might need,just in case.

The driver now knows my name and leaves packages by the door, just to have someone stopping by makes me order more.

However I have to say a yoga mat might be one step too far, as a useless purchase it significantly raises the ‘useless’ bar.

But I might try to exercise, it’s good for you they say, and you never never know it might brighten up my day.

Get those endorphins pumping and helping to  lift the dastardly brain fog. So if you peek in my window don’t be surprised to see me attempting the downward dog!!

Can you help raise money for us?

During these tough times, we’re all restricted in what we can do and lots of us are at home, keeping safely away from Covid-19

Sponsored run, walk or exercise for example? As long as it’s within the government guidelines, we’d love to hear about any ideas you may have and will support with setting up fundraising pages if you need us to

Remember that any money you raise goes directly into helping those who are isolated, lonely and struggling.

Thank you to all those who have and are currently supporting Somewhere house Somerset x

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.
