Safe Families for Children Volunteers

It may come as a surprise to you but we have many children and families in need here in Somerset. But many of these families can have their lives changed through contact with a friendly face.

Our Safe Families For Children volunteers provide a range of support to families, from having a chat over a coffee to helping a mum get her toddler to a doctor’s appointment. You could become a Safe Families Volunteer and make a difference in a local family’s life. In most cases it only takes an hour a week.

We would like to meet people who may be interested in befriending and supporting a local family. We are now developing a network of volunteers across South Somerset and Mendip. All volunteers receive an induction and training and we also facilitate a peer to peer support network for our volunteers.

You can make a difference……

Rural Broadband and Community Fibre Partnerships

Is anyone in Pilton unhappy with their broadband speed?
I am trying to get a campaign off the ground to achieve better speeds for those in Pilton who do not benefit from the fibre cabinet which has been installed by Open Reach in Totterdown Lane and who are still struggling with download/upload broadband.
I would also be happy to hear from anyone who is interested in finding out about the “True Speed” government scheme.
Please contact me on holly@stages.co.uk or 01749 890107 for more information.
