You told us
People told us it is hard to find information about leisure opportunities they can do as a whole family, rather than just for the child with SEND. It is also hard to find information about physical access to venues.
Material on the Local Offer was limited. Material found across the internet was variable and often out of date.
We created a series of pages which we hope will help young people and parent carers access information about more accessible leisure for individuals and families. This includes many new topics such as exploring the arts, theatres and swimming pools, accessible sports, SEND sessions and inclusive youth groups. We have promoted the SEND events calendar to local providers who are adding their accessible sessions regularly. We hope that the new pages will help young people and their families to get out and about more with less stress.
You can find more information on our Leisure pages.
What happens next
We are working to improve the information that Somerset Council is not responsible for and talking with providers to keep the pages up to date.
What has the impact been
Pages were published at the beginning of the summer holidays. We will update this once people have had a chance to use them.
