The Southmead Project is arranging a 50 mile cycle challenge in order to raise awareness of the work being carried out by Southmead Project and to raise valuable funds for the charity.
The Southmead Project is a charity that supports adults who have been affected by sexual, physical or emotional abuse during childhood or later in life. As well as supporting individuals, the project is also working towards raising awareness of the impact of abuse and the cost this has both to individual and society at large.
We are based in Southmead Bristol, the service is available to anyone in the Bristol or surrounding areas.
The Southmead project offers both group support and one to one counselling where professional counsellors will listen and explore ways of helping people to reclaim lives affected by trauma and abuse. Counselling is offered based on need and is a very effective way of aiding recovery from trauma brought on by child abuse. Alongside the important work that is carried out directly with clients, the project also runs events to raise awareness of the impact abuse has on people’s lives. One such event is the wall of silence, an exhibition launched at Colston Hall in Bristol and shown at venues across the country, including City Hall London and Avon and Somerset Police HQ. This exhibition not only raises awareness of the impact and suffering abuse causes, it also serves to offer hope to others whose lives have been impacted by abuse, showing them there is hoping to reclaim their lives.
Currently the demand for the service is higher than the charities’ capacity to meet the needs within the city. As such it is essential events are held to raise funds to allow the valuable work to continue.
The fifty-mile bike ride challenge is open to anyone who wishes to participate, there is no fee to join the ride but we do ask you to raise sponsorship that is then donated to our charity.
