A charity support group is funding workshops in Nailsea to help people suffering from Parkinson’s disease.
The North West Somerset branch of Parkinson’s UK has set up the Who Am I Now sessions to enable people to find out more about the illness and how it will affect them.

Jill Gilbert, from the branch, said: “The workshops explore who we are after a life-changing illness diagnosis.
“They offer a safe space where you can get together with other people in a similar situation and share experiences.
“The sessions look at self esteem, building confidence, managing anger, negative thoughts and fears, and relaxation techniques.
“They offer ways to help find a ‘new normal’ and coping strategies for every day difficulties and challenges.”

The workshop is free. Anyone interested can call Rachel on 01275 810705.
