The Meath Social Enterprise

It is a very important part of the Meath’s philosophy to help dispel the stigma associated with epilepsy and to assist all of our clients to live alongside people from all walks of life, sharing similar experiences and hopes and dreams for the future.

Each one of our social enterprises will be born from that ethos in the years to come.
We firmly believe that with a bit of help, people living with epilepsy and associated disabilities can reach their full potential, and using their creativity and given skills, succeed alongside their peers… but more to the point, enjoying every second along the way!

Changing Perceptions

Changing Perceptions has quickly evolved from Godalming’s best kept secret to a popular and bustling Café and home interior shop. Located at the very top of the High Street this unique and vibrant social enterprise is just a stone’s throw away from the Meath. Meath clients are supported to up-cycle donated furniture in the on-site workshop which is then put on sale in the shop, with all profit going straight back to the charity.

Changing Perceptions has recently benefitted from the addition of a new lazer  cutting machine which allows for smaller items such as decorations, personalised gifts and home accessories, a gorgeous new lazer cut product range has just been launched!

If you’ve not yet visited pop in for a great cup of coffee and delicious homemade cake, see the busy workshop in action as our talented and resourceful team transform unwanted furniture into stylish and individual creations.

We are so proud of Changing Perceptions and you’ll find that our friendly staff and volunteers are always happy to tell you more.
