About us

Hello,

Founded in 2000, we are a user-led charity, run by and for disabled people and unpaid carers based in the heart of Taunton. Disabled people and unpaid carers face significant challenges and inequalities every day, but together with the help of those who support us we are working to change this!

Each year we empower over 3000 disabled people, unpaid carers and our wider community to look after their wellbeing, have equality of opportunity, be independent and have choice and control over how they live their lives. Some of the ways in which we do this include:

  • COGS Dementia Café and Bar – supporting people with dementia to take part in activities built around their interests and memories whilst enabling their partners and/or families to have time out for themselves.
  • Compass Everyday – day opportunities for adults with a learning disability to maintain and develop their life skills and interests, try new experiences, get out and about, socialise and build friendships.
  • Compass Independent Living – providing Direct Payment information, advice and training and services to enable people to live independently and have choice and control over how they have their health and social care needs met.
  • Compass Wellbeing – offers something for everyone, from a weekly inclusive Stay and Play for pre-schoolers; a hydro-pool, sensory room and activities/groups for all ages through to having a cuppa and chat in the community café which also provides volunteering and work experience opportunities.

Like many other groups and charities, since the Covid-19 pandemic hit our shores, we have been impacted by the practical and financial strain of continuing to offer support and services for the people that need it most. Many of our beneficiaries who already experienced inequalities and poorer health and socio-economic outcomes compared to the general population prior to Covid-19 have then also had to grapple with the practical challenges of shielding, increased health and money concerns, reduced contact with their family and/or friends and their local community and changes and reductions to a range of public, health and social care and voluntary sector services and support. It’s no surprise then that this has led to people feeling more lonely, isolated and anxious than ever before.

By playing the Somerset West Lotto and choosing to support us, you will help us to continue to reach out to children, adults and families and provide essential information, support, facilities and activities that empower each person to look after their wellbeing, enjoy life more, feel less isolated and lonely and live independent lives.

Thank you for choosing to support us and good luck!

Yours Faithfully,

Mr Richard Pitman - CEO
