What we do

Children’s Centres in Somerset are run by the getset Service, who work with children, young people and their families from 0 to 19 years, and up to 25 years where the young person has a special educational need.  They provide early help and support from Children’s Centres, community venues and in people’s homes as part of a family support service.
