Recycling and rubbish collection days are changing for some households in Mendip and South Somerset. Read about the changes and how they may affect you.

Free use of the interactive projectors in selected libraries which can support people living with dementia, autism or learning difficulties.

Interactive Projectors with dementia and autism-friendly activities

Interactive Projectors with dementia and autism-friendly activities

We have installed a little piece of magic in Taunton, Yeovil, Chard, Bridgwater, Frome and Williton libraries – the interactive projector creates an interactive surface on a table or the floor, with stimulating games, activities and apps to aid relaxation and interaction.

There are hundreds of games and activities to choose from and they have been specifically designed to support people living with dementia, autism or learning difficulties.

Carers have also found the devices very helpful as they can stimulate memories, emotion and co-ordination and create ways to communicate with carers, family and friends.

The projectors are also sometimes used to provide fun activities for children in Dad’s Clubs, Rhyme-times and at other events.

The interactive projectors are free to use, but please contact the library first to check availability and to make sure a member of staff is available to demonstrate the device.
