Spring Bank Holiday on Monday 27 May means all rubbish and recycling collections will be one day later that week, including Friday collections taking place on Saturday 1 June.
Recycling and rubbish collection days are changing for some households in Mendip and South Somerset. Read about the changes and how they may affect you.


The CYP specialist service, previously known as SPOT service, is made up of five specialist teams:

The teams put children, young people and their families at the heart of everything we do. We listen to children, young people, and their families’ choices, and design our interventions according to their priorities. We provide assessment, support, and advice based on highly specialist knowledge and extensive experience in our field. We facilitate individual’s independence, and promote inclusion of SEND in the children and young person’s home, educational setting and community. We strive to work in a multi-disciplinary way to work jointly with other teams and services in Health and Social Care, to aim for the same goals and support the children, young person and their family needs.

We aim to offer the best specialist advice for children and young people with SEND, and their families, to participate in life experiences. We promote independence through teaching skills, enabling access, and encourage inclusion culture in children and young people’s homes, educational settings and community.
