Barnwood Trust is guided by Barnwood Circle members’ involvement in our work:

  • Listening to what is important to you in your life and what changes you want to see in Gloucestershire.
  • Asking you about topics to understand more before we take action or try to influence in the county.
  • Inviting you to be an Expert by Lived Experience on a project team with employees of Barnwood Trust.


Join a Barnwood Circle Meetup

There are meetups in different areas of Gloucestershire for people to share ideas about what matters locally and across the County for disabled people and people with mental health conditions. Meetups are also a way for Barnwood Circle members to connect and for new people to find out about Barnwood Circle membership.

Get in touch to find out about Meetups happening near you this Spring, Summer or Autumn.


Take part in Barnwood research

We have a research programme at Barnwood Trust that is focused on disability and mental health.  Our research helps us, and others, to drive systemic and societal change, through campaigning and policy work.

Check here for new opportunities to take part in research or get in touch to find out more.


Sign up for a workshop

We offer a range of public workshops. Some are aimed at organisations and groups to help make Gloucestershire more inclusive and accessible. Workshops are facilitated by a range of Barnwood Trust staff and external partners and cater for a wide range of learning styles.

Barnwood Circle members can access workshops for free. See the latest workshops on offer here
