We’ve been hearing a lot from people about how important it is to have face to face support and the opportunity to connect with others who understand your struggles.  Over the last six months we have been expanding and enhancing the wealth of information available on the Local Offer.  Our goal?  To help your search for someone to lean on, or somewhere accessible to escape to.

We know all too well that there aren’t as many opportunities as people would like. But we’re doing our best to reduce the difficulty in discovering the opportunities that are available.

To help you out, we’ve updated our handy events calendar on the Local offer where you can find all the dates for regular support groups, inclusive holiday activities and youth clubs.

Venture into the leisure section to find accessible sports and ways to explore the arts right here in Somerset.  You can also find information about SEND sessions, and accessibility of theatres and swimming pools.

If your family’s new years resolution is to try something new, but you’re worried about your child transitioning between activities why not check out our Local Offer Live session on using visuals to support your child or young person? We hope all these improvements help you feel more connected and supported.
