About Bridging the Gap

We are a support and advocacy project for residents of Taunton Deane housing who have mental health issues; our particular areas of focus are Halcon, North Taunton and Wellington, although we will take referrals from any Taunton Deane housing resident who needs our help. We are part of the One Team; a scheme set up by the police, which also involve Social Services, Taunton Housing, Street Pastors, ourselves and other agencies.

We can support you in…

  • Listening and giving emotional support where needed
  • Provide mental health information
  • Signposting to services
  • Identify options
  • Accompany someone to meetings or appointments, as a supportive presence
  • Represent clients in situations where they don’t feel able to represent  themselves
  • Help with letters, emails, phone calls

As well as with…

  • Self-harm
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Mental health issues
