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


The Somerset Children and Young People’s Plan sets out a shared vision to keep children and young people in Somerset safe and ensure they can grow up in a child friendly county that supports them to be happy, healthy and prepared for adulthood. Taking a whole family approach, we will support our families to be strong and resilient, working together to achieve long-term change and stability so that children can thrive and succeed.

The plan has been created with significant input from children and young people through the Somerset Youth Parliament and Advisory Group, the SSCP Youth Forum, Young Somerset, 2BU, local youth groups, and specific workshops and events.

Young people wanted priorities that were important to them to be central to the plan, these include key issues such as mental health, climate change, sexual health, discrimination and learning opportunities.
