Community Inclusion and Activity Team

The Community Inclusion and Activity Team (formerly the Short Breaks Team) helps and supports children and young people 0 to 18 years with a disability or additional need and their families, to try out new things, have fun and access their local community. They support grant-funded activities that run across Somerset, this includes holiday activities and regular clubs.

Emma introduces the support information and guidance available from the Community Inclusion and Activity Team during Local Offer Live week.
