Did you know the Local Offer has a wealth of video resources? Sessions and workshops are often held live online with different services and are available on video if you missed them. This is a great way to learn more about the Local Offer, and you can find all the previous Local Offer Live videos on the SEND website. This week, we have picked out two that we think are super informative: 

Somerset Apps Library - Apps are a great way to engage with your health and mental well-being, but there are so many apps on the market, it can be hard to know which ones you can trust! That is why the NHS in Somerset have teamed up with ORCHA (the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications) to create one website which shows reviewed health and care-related apps. Every app is rated based on usability, how well it works (clinical assurance) and how it looks after your data. Watch the video here so you can feel confident in the app that you are choosing. You an also watch the video at  An introduction to Somerset Apps from NHS Somerset – YouTube 

Introduction to the Local Offer– This video is a great introduction to the Local Offer, what its purpose is and what it should do for families in Somerset: Somerset’s new Local Offer website – YouTube. Here, Gemma, the Local Offer Coordinator, and Alice, Young Person’s Champion, talk us through the website and some changes that have been made to make the website even better.

You can also find everything you need to know on our pages, About the Local Offer (somerset.gov.uk)
