Before lockdown Paul’s Place ran a support service five days a week for disabled adults from across the wider Bristol area from their base at Coalpit Heath Cricket Club.

But in March the charity was temporarily forced to close its day facility due to government restrictions.

The charity launched a virtual service alongside wellbeing calls with help from a grant from the Coronavirus 2020 Response Fund.

Paul’s Place CEO Daniel Cheesman said: “The day facility is a lifeline for our members and we wanted to set up a project that ensured all our members stayed connected.

“This money helped to keep us going and cover costs during this difficult time and allowed us to keep supporting our members,” said Daniel.
