FLAG Bedford is a user-led social group for adults with a physical or  learning disability and/or sensory impairment, and their friends,  carers and volunteers, who live in the Bedford area. Members can attend our weekly get-togethers at Priory Methodist  Church, to socialise with other members over a cup of tea or coffee  or join in our various activities. We also arrange bi-monthly events and outings in venues used by  the wider community. 
What is FLAG Bedford
Mission Statement
Our aim is to combat social isolation, boost  confidence and promote independence for  disabled adults in the Bedford area. We do this by organising a variety of regular  get-togethers and subsidised events for which  we provide transport and support. We also provide a forum to ensure disabled  access & rights are observed.

FLAG AGM 10th April 2014
New Members / Volunteers welcome.
At FLAG's AGM back in April 2015, the Committee announced that all Community and  Internet Fundraising would be directed into raising money for our 10th Anniversary  celebrations. Some of the money raised was used for our free Anniversary Party in June  and a free trip to Southend-on-Sea in July. The remainder will go towards a free trip to a  Garden Centre in Woburn Sands in November which will include  Afternoon Tea. 5p Challenge. We had a great response to our 5p challenge. It has been very  touching and we cannot express how much it means to FLAG,  the extent members, friends and family have supported us in this  challenge. Last year we collected a total of £472.35, which was  9447 5p’s. It proved so popular that we are going to continue the  challenge this year so keep collecting those 5p’s and thank you.
FLAG now has its very own  Mascot, in the shape of a  bear. There was only one  name we could give him and  that was Jeff.
