Disability and Inclusion

Disability and Inclusion Projects 

Bridges Centre is committed to promoting equality and to fostering an inclusive and welcoming culture for all.  As a community centre, it is our responsibility to ensure that, as an integral part of what we do, we encourage and support people living with a disability, visible or invisible, to participate in everyday life.

Central to this work are four projects based here at the centre in Monmouth but whose work supports the needs of people countywide with projects in Abergavenny, Caldicot, Chepstow, and Monmouth.

We encourage people to get involved in our activities, regardless of their disability, gender or race.

Building Bridges

Building Bridges is a project working with 14-25 year olds who have additional needs. Our aim is to support and encourage young people to engage in their local communities; broadening their social networks, making friends, confidence building and learning social skills. Our focus is on sustainability and supporting our young people to make connections with individuals and groups that outlive the life of our project. We do this through one-to-one and group work encompassing social, leisure and work related activities.

Quest Busters

Quest Busters aim is to support the entire family where a child between 6 and 17 has additional needs. We run a diverse range of events throughout the year, with an emphasis on inclusive and fun activities for the entire family.  

People First Monmouthshire  

Bridges Centre is home to the Monmouthshire chapter of All Wales People First, the united voice of self-advocacy groups and people with learning disabilities in Wales. 

All Wales People First is an organisation for, and led by men and women with a learning disability. It is unique in Wales in that it is the only national member-led organisation that represents the voice of men and women with a learning disability. 

Autism Family Support Service  

This free to access support service is aimed at giving guidance and support to any parent or carer in Monmouthshire who cares for a child who is, or may be on the autism spectrum. Your child does not need to have a formal diagnosis to access the project – if you are concerned that your child may have an autism spectrum disorder you can refer yourself for advice and support.
