Somerset County Council is committed to supporting communities and young people who have, or want to develop, youth provision – it does this through the Youth and Community Service. The service will help you provide the best youth provision possible in your community.
They offer a wide range of support, resources, advice and information to communities and organisations, including:
They also offer the Youth Equipment Store (YES) which hires equipment for children and young people and the adults working with them, at very affordable rates. The Store is based near Taunton and can deliver to recognised groups across Somerset.
There is a wide range of equipment from the camping and hiking tools needed to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award to stage lighting and mountain bikes. YES also has a range of equipment and toys for children and young people with disabilities and additional needs. These include everything from sensory toys to mobility aids.
All schools, childcare and SEND providers must make their policy and provision for children with
Special Educational Needs (SEN) available on their website. This is usually published in the
provider's SEN information report. This link takes you to where you can find this provider's
SEN information report.
If you cannot find what you are looking for or you have questions about the provider's SEN
provision, you should contact the provider directly.
We usually hold some information about a provider's policy and provision and you can find what
we do hold here.
Professional support to community and independent groups to enable them to provide good quality informal learning and development opportunities that help young people aged 11 to 19 reach their full potential.
