New ‘drop-in’ opens in Taunton

A new care and support ‘Community Connect’ drop-in opens in Taunton next week.

The drop-in will take place at the Priorswood Community Centre in Taunton (TA2 7JW) on the first Monday of every month from 9.30am to 12noon – starting on Monday 3 April.

At the drop-in people can find information and advice on care and support options, as well as information about local services and community groups that can provide help.

No appointments are needed, just turn up for a chat and a cuppa with a friendly member of the social care team, a local Community Agent or volunteer.

A spokesperson for Somerset County Council, said: “The drop-in is a really useful place for people to get quick advice on social care and information on support groups, social and leisure groups, care services and volunteering opportunities in their local area. There is more going on in local communities than you might realise and some of it may be just what you need. Please pop in – even if it is just to say hello and have a cup of tea.”
