A health hub to help people with medical and social issues will launch next month.

Nailsea Town Council and the Patients’ Association announced plans to set up The Nailsea Place in December 2014 to provide extra support for people including art therapy, bereavement counselling and help to manage long-term medical conditions.

The authority has agreed to buy Youth House, in High Street, which will act as a base for the hub as well as youth provision.

The council is running a workshop led by Cardiff University at the tithe barn, in Church Lane, on March 3 to discuss the support and services needed in the town and ways they can be provided.

Town council clerk Ian Morrell said: “At a time when health and care services are being stretched to breaking point, the need for innovative approaches to helping people live well within their own communities has never been greater.

“The town council is committed to pursuing a concept called The Nailsea Place, and this workshop is a starting point for defining key issues prior to implementation.”

Experts from Cardiff University will discuss what it means to be mentally and physically healthy and how this can affect people’s quality of life.

The event, which is invite-only, will also focus on how to interact more effectively with people suffering from dementia and demonstrate how drawing workshops can help people to open up about sensitive topics such as living with HIV or infertility.

The aim of The Nailsea Place is to bring all resources and services under one roof so people can access all the support they need.

Take part in our poll to tell us know what services you would like to see at The Nailsea Place.

If there are any services not mentioned which you feel are needed, join the discussion about the hub on the North Somerset Times Facebook page.
