We provide a wide range of person-centred services across the Somerset area, supporting adults and children with learning disabilities and autism.
We'll support you in your own home – how much support you receive will depend on your own needs. Some people have support 24 hours a day, other people only have a few hours each week. We support people who live in shared accommodation and people who choose to live on their own.
Accommodation with support (previously known as registered care)
All of our homes are different, just as everyone living in them is different. We provide individual services so that everyone is free to live the life they choose. You'll be supported to do the things you want to achieve. Some of our homes provide nursing care for people who have complex health needs.
We support people to manage their own homes and keep their tenancy. We can support people who are already in their home or support people to find a new home.
Community team services
We support people to access their community to make positive outcomes a reality. We provide opportunities for people to develop their social interests and to build their confidence and self-esteem, through activities that make them feel valued.
We have a range of enterprises that provide opportunities for individuals to develop their skills and life experience. All our social enterprises are based within the community whether you want paid work, to learn how to be more independent, or provide a service in your community.
Children and young people
In Somerset, we offer daytime activity short breaks for young people with learning disabilities and autism, aged 13-18 years during school summer holidays.
For a small daily cost we arrange for groups of up to 10 young people to get involved in activities such as cooking, crafts, ten pin bowling, and other sports
We also operate Brandon's Playlink scheme to youngsters in Taunton offering inclusion playschemes, buddy schemes, and teenage workshops.

We run a range of projects that support people to live a fulfilling lives. These include; Supported Employment and Hate Crime.
